Tug of War

Turning it over.

For years,



and reconsidering.

A constant tug-of-war.

So much energy spent

only to stay

stuck in place.

Not strong enough

to pull the rope


Not willing to surrender

the fire

in your heart.

The dream

of a different ending.

There is no winning

this game.

Lift your eyes

off the rope

my love.

Look around you.

See the open field.

There is so much


to play.

To create

your own game.

Look up, overhead.

There is nothing

between you

and the soaring sky.

Open your hand.

Let go

of the rope.

Unleash the fire

in your heart.

Let it transform

the world.
