Letting Go Poem

SHE LET GO

"She let go

Without a thought or a word

She let go

She let go of the fear

She let go of the judgements

She let go of all of options swarming around her head

She let go of the committee of indecision within her

She let go of all the right reasons holy and completely without hesitation and worry

She just let go

She didn't ask anyone for advise

She didn't read a book on how to let go

She didn't search the scriptures

She just let go

She let go of all the memories that held her back

She let go of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward

She let go of the planning and all the calculations of how to do it just right

She didn't promise to let go

She didn't journal about it

She write the projected date in her day timer

She made no public announcement or put no ad in the paper

She didn't check the weather report or read her daily horoscope

She just let go

She didn't analyse whether she should let go

She didn't call her friends to discuss the matter

She didn't do a five step spiritual mind treatment

She didn't call the prayer line

She didn't utter one word

She just let go

No one was there when it happened

There was no applause or congratulations

No one thanked her or praised her

No one noticed a thing

Like a leaf falling from a tree

She just let go

There was no effort, there was no struggle

It wasn't good and it wasn't bad

It was what it was and it is just that

In the space of letting go, she let it all be

A small smile came over her face

A light breeze blew right through her

The sun the moon, shone forever more."
