The King of Letting Go

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
