I’ve become an expert at holding.
My clenched hands
I don’t release very easily. For a number of reasons.
I don’t want to be a burden
I want to be the strong one
My heart is just to fragile to trust again
To fly. To break the bond between my feet (heart) and the soil of this earth I’m going to need to release. To exhale the all the things I’ve been holding onto.
I’ve become an expert in holding.
And maybe that’s okay for right now. But one day I’m going to have to let go and release the things I’m holding.
