  1. 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…

    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!
  2. Oh, FaithWoman, that touched my heart!
