I tried everything

Became a crazy, devil

Fin’lly, nothing worked

About the poem:

“Lighten up!”, is sometimes hard for me to do. I want to force and hurry things along into my plan.  When I hear myself say, “I’ve tried everything!” in exasperation, I eventually realize..Wait!!!  It’s time to try “nothing”. That is, to stop pushing and let go, let it go. (If I have trouble doing this, I get help from my mentor. Usually, I wish I’d asked for help sooner. )

By releasing my stranglehold on a problem, solutions bubble up delivering something better than I’d imagined. In the 12-step programs, like Al-Anon, a slogan sums this up as: “Let go and let God.”
