let go the steely grip of control

let go the tight grip
you have
around your life
it is not your slave
or your enemy
it is not even yours!
instead
hold your life
as you would
a small child
full of potential
and wide eyed openness.

you do not write
the book of your life
you are a poem
being written
a song being sung
and all this
clutching 
and grasping
and squeezing
does nothing
but cause pain.

why not let go
and see your life
as a glorious
masterpiece
of darkness 
and light,
of joy and sorrow,
a dance of form
in emptiness.

this is freedom.
