MONDAY’S POEM: Surrender

November 25, 2013 Leave a comment

It’s been a heck of a week since my last poem post on Monday – quite a “journey”! But I am coming around and accepting the journey openly and with excitement! Stay tuned! Meanwhile I can only recommend:

Surrender

It is a struggle to let go
of everything that holds life
Together.

The ego doesn’t release easily
without a fight for its life
Together.

The pain of release can hold
on for years, life times, all
Together.

The call to surrender is not one
to follow a path of ease, but
Another.

The path of wisdom and compassion
for all sentient beings is distinctly
Another.

It is a path the ego rejects
out of blind fear of death, yes
Another!

Surrender; choose death for joy!
