My New Poem: Let It Be

My New Poem: Let It Be



Let it Be

like Atlas carrying the world
taking too much responsibility
I need a vacation
from introspection
huge expectation and crippling hope
that shrivels and snivels
trying to make it all right
with too much effort
knowing what it could be
with too much intensity
and too much tenacity
why do only I have the vision
but they have theirs too
that I don’t get and they don’t get mine
will it ever come together
or does it even need to
the world rolls on without assistance
so put it down
maybe they will too
we’ve been dangerously tossing it back and forth
full of opinions and dogmatic perspective
who can carry it better
my way or your way
enough already
let it rest
there is a bigger plan
one of peace without exertion
harmony without opposition
purpose without permission
freedom without dissimulation
oneness without amalgamation
distinct core unique individuality
mutually embraced
honored and celebrated
without explanation
without procrastination
complete before commenced
carefully cosseted
I’ll do my part
summer will soon start
and I’ll float
unwittingly ubiquitous
bearing the solution
locked deep inside the largest patience
supporting me to leave it alone
enjoying serendipitous simplicity instead
trusting only providence to uphold and transmit it all
as the world rolls on unaided safely as it should

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
