With only a week & a half before the new year,
I’ve given up on being productive.
I’ve fought an uphill battle all month.
It’s time to do
What I should have before done –
Trust things to naturally unfold.
This is a lesson I struggle to learn.
Things happen on their own time –
The more I force or resist,
The less progress I make.
Each being signs I should
Follow life’s chosen pace.
This is where my lingering impatience
Most deeply rests
In feeling that progress should come
At a much faster pace.
What would happen if I allowed things to be?
If I accepted the present
Without concern for the future
Thought of the past?
What might flower into existence
If only I sat back
And learned to more fully relax?
