To Live In This World

To live in this world
Really live
Is to be willing
To lose it all
The people you love
The things you love
Anything dear to you
To live in this world
Is to acknowledge
A terrifying lack of control
Over what comes into our lives
What goes from our lives

Lives often lived
With a tight grip
On what is cherished
An exhausting grip
That gives a sense of control

But this grip
Doesn’t actually

No grip is that strong

Leaving us to wonder
Is living in fear
Or is it just

Would we live better
If we were less afraid
Of losing

Maybe it’s OK
To loosen the grip
And let life be what it is

Maybe it’s OK
To let go
And live
