some can only carry what their hands can hold

just how some can only feel safe in the feeling that they fold

what people hide away only adds to the mold

of what becomes confortable creating habits of old

but if you want to break free you have to let go

  1. Most folks are afraid of letting go what is comfortable…a fear of the unknown.

  2. love your brilliance,
    powerful message,

  3. So true, and I agree with martin. It’s hard for many to let go.

  4. Words to live by. Thank you for the message and lovely rhythm in that.
