Clinging Clinging They all come here With such common bonds Pain, confusion frustration They all come here clinging We all feel the clinging The frustration of asking What are we clinging to? What won’t we let go of ? What are we afraid of That life may be bringing? The leaf clings to the tree Just as we cling to thee The tree itself is dead Just as we inside ourselves Our filled with dread The snow is covering the leaf Just as the confusion is Covering our souls deep within A cold harsh winter is swirling about Just as our hearts have been turned to stone We are clinging Hanging on so tight with much fright The leaf is slowly falling Falling to the ground Our lives too our falling Each at our own pace What they can’t see And I did not for a long time Is that by clinging the pain will continue But to let go Is the start of a new leaf Just as the leaf on the tree let’s go A bud will soon blossom Into a new beginning Just as you will blossom As you discover yourself The snow will melt As the season changes As your heart will start to warm aglow When you allow your inner self to flow When you discover that you deserve so much more You will see the new beginnings within You will begin to have new life Just as the leaf will that I captured on This cold snowy day… Faithwoman January 6, 2006 Hmmm. this is fun looking through what I have written to share.. you see it was the writing that gave me healing way back when.. It was the Lord that spoke to me that night to write.. and now that I look at alot of my writings, I feel there is a spiritual undertone to them. Have a awesome week! Quit clinging and let God in Amen!
