It is Spring and it is time to go (Forward)

We’ve been bound by a hardened heart and our inability to see ourselves in each other

we’ve been puffed up by ego and pride enslaved by how things have always been
and now it is time to go

but fear threatens to paralyze how can we possibly exist any other way

our imagination falters  the attachment to what we know is so great

it doesn’t matter that it causes us so much pain we dig in we will not be moved
but this season tells us it is time to go
maybe we can depart without causing too much suffering

maybe we can go without destroying what is left behind can we find new ways out of narrowness

out of the confines of habits that restrict our growth and bind our spirit? delicate white flowers rise out of hard ground trees broken by ice begin to bloom
the season tells us it is time to go
the journey starts with one step a simple step a momentary willingness

a slight turn green shoots are scattered among long fallen leaves the way forward is uncertain

the path has not yet been cleared
but the season tells us all of us together
it is time to go … FORWARD
