Changing Seasons…

There will always be people,
Who will turn out in ways you never expected,
And it dawns on you that you have to let them go,
So that they can fulfill their destinies,
While you go on to fulfill your own life path.

As life likes to dish out surprises and challenges,
Sometimes it is only through letting go,
When your heart cries in anguish,
That in the agonizing process that you realize,
What is truly worth holding onto.

Letting go does not signify weakness,
As it might take more courage to let go than holding on,
Like the big, inflexible tree that snaps in the storm,
While tiny blades of grasses yield and live on,
Revealing the strength of letting go.

    Beautiful words with a beautiful image. Yes, there are things we just have to let go of no matter how much we want to hold on to them…

    TONI: thank you for the kind compliment. truly, we can’t hold everything dear to us. sometimes, letting them on there own is the best thing. it will help them grow or appreciate the things they took for granted 😀

    JOY: thank you, glad you like it. and who do did i let go? it was my lil bro. he needs to do some growing up and find himself as well 😉

    Text and image both wonderful.

    Autumn is the time to shed what summer brought us. To quote one of my fave songs:”… has to shed it’s leaves in winter to grow them back in spring, to welcome life again.”

    Me sings, “I know that I should get on with my life but a life lived without you could never be right….”
