What if?


What if I just let go
and tried not to care
What would happen
or could I even dare

Would the world’s weight
be lifted from my shoulders
Then to the Heavenly Father
I would feel closer

Would peace finally find its way
into my anxious mind
Am I strong enough to believe
everything would align

How can I relinquish
the control I desire
Be truly faithful to
see what would transpire

I’ll let go and let God
allowing Faith to lead instead
Knowing He’ll take care of me
all doubts and fears will shed

    1. Thanks so much, Al, and I love how you phrased it…a necessary “attempt” at moving forward. That’s exactly what faith is; it’s not black and white, it’s difficult to sustain through suffering and such, and yet, it helps us move forward, allowing our minds to rest in peace…:)

  1. Im sure “yes” is the answer to all this lovely poem’s questions Lauren. If only letting go and letting God were that simple to do! We seem, as humans, to want to kerp tight hold of the reins and yet how freeing and trusting simply to let go… ❤️ Xx

    1. I wish it were easy, too, just like writing about it was, Chris! I know I keep a pretty tight hold on those reigns and want very much to be able to loosen up on my grip. 🙂 Still working on it! Thanks for your comment! Hugs! ♥

  2. Lovely reminder to have faith when we do what we can and yet also have to acknowledge what is (perhaps, for good reason) ‘out of our hands’. A beautiful poem that stands on the edge of faith rather than despair. I send blessings with hugs and much love, Diane XO ❤

  3. Oh I can so recommend Letting Go Lauren.. Your shoulders will definitely weigh much less.. I can vouch for that. Once I set my intent on retirement.. the weight lifted.. can not wait now until the end of the month. Lol.. and then I shall be flying LOL 🙂

    1. I do, then I grab those reins again! 🙂 It’s a love/hate relationship with myself, but I do feel better when I “let go.” And I’m soooo jealous you get to retire, but also very happy for you! 🙂 xoxo

      1. Well Lauren.. I thought long and hard.. and although I wont have an income I have a little put by… I can cut my coat according to my cloth.. Life is passing us by and Hubby was retirement age 3 yrs ago.. So If I kept working until my official retirement age at 66 now the government here as changed the goal posts it used to be 60 for women… .. We have to make the best of the NOW moments.. its no good putting things off for the future.. So I took the plunge… and I know the universe will provide.. And hope to got to craft stalls at some point with my paintings.. 🙂 So alls good.. 🙂

    1. I agree, Don. That line is not literal in the sense of not caring for others; it’s more about not caring what other people think. That in itself can make us crazy. We need to be strong and confident in ourselves and have faith in something “bigger than life” if that is what you choose…thanks for stopping by!

I appreciate your thoughts!
