Hostilities

There are things I should learn to let go
but I’m either too stubborn or slow
my shoulders droop lower each day
from the chip that I won’t brush away

although I inherently know
there are things I should learn to let go
my defenses are fashioned with pride
the nefarious villain inside.

It’s ironic that I’m dug in here
behind these embankments of fear
there are things I should learn to let go
to be rid of this quarrelsome foe

so the conflict can possibly cease
and perhaps bring a tentative peace
that’s contingent on one proviso—
there are things I must learn to let go.

Incredibly well-put!

Also, I relate to this one...wholeheartedly.

yep just let em go--easier said than done--but wise to go--great verses :)

I wish I would learn to take my own advice - thanks a lot Jack and Lynn.
