As I open myself to living
closer to the space where the horizon lies
I see my achievements lining up
along a path that leads into the distance behind me.
I am letting go.
I am letting a tired letting go pervade me,
tired of people around me wearing the tight shoes of narrow-mindedness,
tired of their whisper-behind-your-back reactions.
I am embracing the embrace of space,
opening up to a cloudless sky
and feeling the early morning air of a new beginning.
A fresh breeze caresses my skin
and I turn gentle again.
