MONDAY’S POEM: Surrender

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:


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

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

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

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

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

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

Surrender; choose death for joy!
