When Sun shines bright, my grip relaxes,
I let go of death and taxes,
pool at place where thirst is quenched,
smile where jaw was tightly clenched.
Puddling messes can be scary,
Life’s complex, and heart is wary,
but when fist becomes a hand,
soul can swim to Promised Land.

Exactly why I can play on that idea – are they the only sure things in this life? Or if I let go of what I feel secure in, can I find a new threshold of security? Hmmm….
