The King of Letting Go

8 Apr

“Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.”  ~Clarence W. Hall

The King of Letting Go

I am a humble servant of
The King of Letting Go
Every day I try to let
My Monarch’s teachings flow

This King did not possess riches
His life was about loss
My King did not sit on a throne
Instead He had a cross

He wore no fancy crown of gold
Adorned with studded jewels
Instead there was a crown of thorns
Placed on His head by fools

He walked away from His home town
From those who had raised Him
To cast His light in places that
Had grown shady and dim

He let go of the things He had
The things He did possess
He knew the key to happiness
Was knowing you need less

And when the only thing left was
His life, they took that too
He let it go as He explained
“They know not what they do”

I wonder why it’s so hard for
People to let it go
Everyday annoyances
That make our anger grow

But one thing we can’t seem to grasp
And hold on tightly to
Is the lesson this King taught
We just cannot construe

The thought that peace is in our grasp
If we let go, move on
Accept the things we cannot change
Accept what’s gone is gone

I am a humble servant of
The King of Letting Go
I will not be dragged down because
I will no longer tow

I will sever the lines that hold me
To anchoring weight
I will let go of my ego
My selfishness, my hate

Because my King has done the same
And asks no less of me
He’s taught us only when we let
It go can we be free

    Amazing work, and ego is something many of us struggle with day to day. Truly the answer is so simple, contain the ego and letting go is as good as done. Truly admire all your work.

    You continue to totally amaze and impress me with your original titles that are just right on the money! “The King of Letting Go”–how wonderful a way to put the timeless examples of Our Lord into the psychobabble talk of the 21st Century! Hooray!

    People hang onto their emotions more than we realise.. they hold onto the negatives like blankets to keep themselves warm.. wrapping themselves tightly not letting the love in.. Holding onto possessions jealousies, hates, envy and greed.. When one lets go of all of these.. and then allows the Love in.. He will see that there is no need for the blanket, for he is already warmed by the love he shall Find from others hearts..
    A wonderfully double edged Poem.. only a true warrior could write..

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
