Let It Go
By Danna Faulds
Let go of the ways you thought life
would unfold; the holding of plans
or dreams or expectations- let it
all go. Save your strength to swim
with the tide. The choice to fight
what is here before you now will
only result in struggle, fear and
desperate attempts to flee from the
very energy you long for. Let go.
Let it all go and flow with the grace
that washes through your days whether
you received it gently or with all your
quills raised to defend against invaders.
Take this on faith: the mind may never
find the explanations that it seeks , but
you will move forward nonetheless.
Let go, and the wave’s crest will carry
you to unknown shores, beyond your
wildest dreams or destinations. Let it
all go and find the place of rest and
peace, and certain transformation.
A friend recently shared this poem with me. I loved the invitation to let go, to rest and allow transformation. I enjoy Danna Faulds poetry and was delighted to find a poem that I had not seen before. What a beautiful gift.
