Poems

Let Go of Something

 

Let go of something,

somewhere. Use yoga

to become aware, to

touch what lies beneath

the surface of the skin.

Is there tension longing

for release; a knot of

fear so deep and familiar

that you believe it’s

part of who you are?

 

Ease into dark corners,

locked rooms, unexplored

hallways. Gain entry

not by force or will

but only by softness.

Enter on the wings of

breath, and turn the

key of self-acceptance

to let go of something,
