becoming

You

Only

Grow as far

As you allow

Yourself to expand

Beyond previously

Accepted limitations

For what we saw to be the truth

Only this morning, may ring as false

As new truths present themselves, each moment

We try to hang onto the outdated

Because we seek some stability

It is in being flexible

That we realize how change

Helps us find the freedom

To enjoy our lives

Because we are

Willing to

Release

Need

  1. This really is a fabulous poem, Annette. The extra length has allowed for so much expression.
