#6 resigning (1 Viewer)

as mist clears from mountains
this mind begins to align
more fully with itself
finding a clarity
not long lost
but sorely missed.

why not resign ourselves
to hope
and accept
that with or without it,
the world doesn't care.

what harm is there
in lightening the load?

ah! this is number 6...i need to remember what i'm posting these for...

I love the message of this poem too. We might not be able to change what has happened but we can choose our outlook going forward. Quite an inspirational poem. :)

I agree with jen... hope is a fragile, but resilient thing, and without it... there would be no reason to go forward...I love your introspective vibe... very zen...
