letting go

As I open myself to living

closer to the space where the horizon lies


I see my achievements lining up

like trees

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.
