Letting Go: 
In practice there is always the dance between feeling the truth of our suffering and letting go of it, 
not in a dismissive way but in a way that honors it”.
Was it disappointments heaped upon your plate
that became too much
for you to shoulder?
Had angry clouds obscured your sight,
stopped the beam
from finding you?
Did the tether stop you in your tracks
when stumbling
through your midnight maze?
Did you think no one could ever know,
the splendor of this searing pain
imbued in your anguished shadows?
And just before that final moment
when time did not exist,
was there an echo in your soul?
Did you have a change of heart
did you hesitate a bit too long?
I’m hoping that you fell.
