Can it be simple?




Sometimes I avoid
important things. Some would say
I procrastinate.

Remove middleman:
The avoiding one in me,
reveal your secret.

Can I manage to
avoid avoiding? I think
I can put that off.

Direct contact with
that which frightens me could be
the way to let go.

I want to let go
of the shame of things undone.
Can it be simple?

Yes dear Brooks, you can avoid avoiding :) I didn't really know that until this year...

That's what I've been trying to work with and will be well into the new year.

"I want to let go
of the shame of things undone.
Can it be simple?"

The end really resonates too. Thanks for sharing.

Letting go of something is really hard even though you've accepted it. all i can say just keep on moving forward.

Great post! Here are some like minded words from the beginning of a wonderful book I'm reading called The Places that Scare You by Pema Chodron:
"Confess your hidden faults.
Approach what you find repulsive.
Help those you think you cannot help. Anything you are attached to, let it go.
Go to the places that scare you."
