Poem: Pushing a rope

After awhile pushing a rope
Hoping against hope
Trying to change
What wants to remain the same
After awhile pushing a rope
When I finally accept ‘Nope’
What a relief to just dump it
Then grab the rope and jump it


About the poem:
Sometimes we think we should just do a little more, try a little harder, say it again a different way. But still we may end up stuck in an uneven situation. When this happens to me, I can see it getting out of control.

And what I feel today is that relief of being past that stage, rather than in it. Instead of being frustrated, I feel free! Let’s jumprope!

What troubled time have you moved through? What worry have you let go of? Be proud of and thankful for that!
