So here we go
Into the change,
Into the maelstrom,
Into that chaos, that unknown,
That duality, that reality,
All of that love and suffering,
Joy and sorrow
That comprises terrrestrial existence.
Just as we have again and again.
Shall we resist the change
Or shall we embrace it?
I ask myself, what do I need to let go of?
What do I need to sacrifice to survive?
Shall I leave my pedestal willingly,
Surely not that,
This place I call safe,
Myself, my center, my home,
My importance, my illusion?
Or shall I be dragged away from it
Kicking and screaming
By the currents of time, of change,
Not knowing I shall always be
In that moment, that leap, exactly here,
In that eternity,
Whether I leap willingly, in faith,
or hang on to the past without hope.
