Some point in time on the line of our living
Our life slows down to a sense of forgiving
Forgive me for this let go of that
As we plod forward on a jagged track
Life is not easy gets more complicated
As we step along often belated
Getting understanding after the fact
Clarity comes long after the act
That is a trick simple mind plays
As we trod a path counting our days
We don’t have forever here on this earth
Birth begins dying no matter net worth
What happens inside at some point in time
Our body fails we lose our brine
Muscles grow weak hearts start to flutter
Speech becomes slurred the eloquent stutter
Days become numbered bodies get thick
When we reflect it’s gone by too quick
As you think back on your youthful reign
Remember the pleasure when faced with pain
Endurance and focus joy in this place
Provide some footholds on your path to grace
Remember pleasure is not what to expect
Let your joyous giving salve each sense of regret
What are you carrying around that’s weighing you down?
Do you realize that by holding onto a past hurt, slight or betrayal you are the one suffering the physical consequences of stress?
Do you understand that letting go is more about a gift to yourself than a gift bestowed on others? Do you understand you can do it unilaterally?
