Let Me Know (On Letting Go and Taking Flight)

 



Let me 
know
when you
are ready
to go.

I've 
taken
that leap 
before.

I know,
the fear,
the lies
that bind you
to the edge
of that prison
wall.

They 
boast such 
certainty.
"This
is all
there ever,
was, all  
there ever 
will be,"
they say.

But, 
if your heart 
whispers shadows 
of another land, 
let me know.

I will
stand
at the edge
with you.

I, too, 
know 
the fear 
of falling,
of landing 
in a wilderness
far beyond
settled lands.

But, 
I also know
what they will never know:

the rush of wind
on your face, the feeling
of taking flight; the courage
it takes, the love.

- K. Chripczuk

As a new year approaches, I'm pondering the things I have left behind this year and wondering what more might need to go. Letting go is never easy, but it's worth the work it takes. Perhaps, you are facing a difficult letting go. Let me know, I'd be happy to "stand at the edge with you." I can't wait to see your life take flight.
