Surrender

Surrender


And her walls came a tumblin' down
Tho she knew as they fell
That there was a reason.
But hell if she could find it  amidst
The Wreckage

In her favor was that she had lived a long time.
A long time enough to know that
getting hold of a perspective takes time.
A long time enough to know
that some things must simply be endured.

 Now that did not mean
that there weren't those
moments when she held onto her pain
and shook it  maniacally
like a coon dog shakes its prey.

With a trickle of trust in her gut
she made it through.
With that trickle of trust in her gut,
she was able to stay the pain
of her weeping heart.


That trickle of trust
grew larger and larger.
And one day she understood
That it was okay to let
 her identity
 go....
