Turn it loose!


Let go of your preconceptions.
Turn them loose
like leaves picked in the forest
and offered to the wind.

let go of your fears
turn them loose
the way you'd let go
of a rattlesnake
that you mistook for a stick.

let go of your anger
turn it loose
the way you'd drop
a hot coal you intend
to throw at someone.

let go of your beliefs
turn them loose
the way you'd drop a bottle
of poison
that you mistook for

let go of judgment
turn it loose
pry free from the shackles
of condemnation and spite.

let go of your self
turn it loose
be free and at ease
in the empty space
between breaths.
Om mani padme hum.
