This Is Surrender

Image source:

As I grasp the sadness of this moment
The impermanence of everything knocking on the door
This is good sadness
The kind that reaches down deep
Gently caresses My insides
Just for a while the time around Me stops
I can feel Myself fully
Nothing makes sense
As well as everything has meaning
This is meaningfully
Holding me as a ride the smooth wave of delicate sadness
Touching on, dancing on the edge of life’s fullness
Repetitively reaching the riches it has to offer me
Dying and breathing
A good death
Death of holding on
This is surrender

Facing Myself,

Ian Altosaar
