I could so easily let go,
allow it all to slide through my fingers.
I could free fall from this mess of a life;
wave after wave of air blow through my being
scattering my energy to all directions.
I can feel the call to surrender.
I am at times so tired—
hold my arms out and just drop.
Yet, there is something so deep inside,
so strong and resolute
that I cannot submit to anything
but another step forward,
dragging weary limb after limb
until I can again—
