surrender

surrender to your problems, the solution's around the bend
unfurl your clinched hands and hold them up to heaven--if only for a moment-surrender

release your inner most struggles-choose to be free-

don't wait until that perfect day---those days have lines still waiting, nervously--

surrender to your breaths as you take in the air of redemption --as you move toward that thing in the unseen reveal--

loosen that tight hold on the thing that is not holding you in place---

and fall fall fall into that sweet moment of surrender and rest

  1. I so like this; I need to surrender more to get that rest. I don't know why sometimes it takes us so long to surrender; why we hold on too tight to that which would be better served by surrending it to God.

    may it be a nice weekend!

  4. There is so much that can hold us back and push us down if we let it. It's up to us to break free and like you say the time is now.

  6. Your words hint at your poetic turn of mind. Does summer affect you that way, Lynn?

    1. i don't think it does particularly---i have always fancied myself a poet first---probably fall and winter bring it out in me more---thanks for reading and asking d.g.!

  10. I am waving the white flag, honest. But lately it feels like more of a caution flag in which the cars are still coming at me, just using caution to only leave me maimed.

    Deep cleansing breaths....

  17. Hi Lynn, I answered your question about your rhododendron, but I don't think it posted as a reply to your question. If you want to see the answer, just go back to my blog and read what I say under your post.
