Holding on or Letting Go
Tell me have you struggled as much with this
As I have.
It is true we all do, however when one is in the vector
Of the decision, it feels so alone.
Like no one else has travelled the road,
Yet we all have in one way or another.
The difficulty is the decision to hold on or let go it is
Intensely intimate and personal
No one can choose for you.
T’is a holy moment of reckoning which others looking
In will find hard to understand.
They do not need to really, it need only make sense to you.
Whether life has made the choice for you by circumstance or you are left
To choose yourself-
The internal processes that one must endure after
Are the same.
Holding on brings, commitment, rediscovery and forgiveness
Letting go brings unspeakable grief, shame, and hollowness.
Neither is more pleasant than the other.
But which way to go
Now that is the pinnacle.
Rest for awhile the answers will come,
In their own time and in faith.
