This is surrender

This is Surrender

All is silence except for your breath
Which lets you know
You’re still alive
In all the stillness and space
Claims of your demise
Were exaggerated greatly
And you’re safe despite it all

This is Surrender
The first hundred times or so
As seen through a lens of fear
Learning to trust the process
And the divine
Trust that it’s okay for it all to fall apart
Only a little less terrifying each time

Until Surrender finally says…
Babe, let’s talk!
Let’s be friends, you know?
To travel this way, you’d better get good with me
So we can walk the heroine’s path
Swords and torches blazing as a team
And meet each dragon with our hearts alight
So it’d help greatly if
You stop confusing me with the Lord of Time
I am not the end of you

And so finally you dance
Repeatedly and repeatedly
Sweating and bawling
And falling
And relinquishing expectations of a net
All the while innately knowing
You are held
Yes, you are
And it’s safe to return the embrace

Finally one day as you walk some Rather treacherous ground
Side by side, again
Lock step
The truth appears
A crystalline raindrop
With the sun shining through

Oh Surrender! you exclaim
Ohhhh I’d no idea
Though I’d long given up the thought that Surrender = Death
You still always felt hard
Another little loss over and over
But!
Just now as I sought your embrace
I saw your truth
Surrender is refuge
Surrender is love
Surrender is divine grace
You were always my ally
Waiting for me to understand

Much love,
