Leaving Shit Behind

Posted on September 21, 2011


It may sound crass, but that’s how I feel about all of the negative garbage we learn and call truth.  It’s the shit that we tell ourselves that keeps us in place.  The dung that holds us back.  The crap that needs to be purged so that we can become more of who we truly are.  It’s the bullshit that’s kept me in that small place.

I’m in the process of leaving it all behind.

My intention is to express through the written word and I’m ready to step forward and say what’s on my mind.

Letting Go

I let go and fell into a sandpit of knowledge and wisdom.

I let go and remembered something forgotten.

I let go and grew bigger, and stronger, and true.

I let go and discovered more of my soul.

It was bound to happen.

The rope I held onto had become old and frayed.

I’m quite sure it would have held me a little longer, but

I let go and released a bit more of my essence.

I’ve noted that I am still as I am.

I look as I did while I was still holding on.

You can’t see the change that has taken place, but

If you listen you may sense that all is not the same.

It’s subtle, it’s quiet, and it’s hidden from view.

It’s softer, yet stronger, more resilient and free.

It’s a force so strong one might be compelled to resist, but

It’s calmly and lovingly spreading through me.

I know that I have found more of me.

A voice that’s still timid though willing to speak.

A mind that‘s more open and willing to see.

There are ropes that still bind me, but they’re not nearly as strong,

as the rope I let go of, in order to grow.
