Sometimes

You just have to let it go and let things be.

Believe that in the end it will all work out as meant to be.

 

Everyone knows what his or her best is.

Not everyone cares to shout it out.

 

Others trust in their own silence.

I should trust in their silence too.

 

If I can trust that I know best, no reason not to trust others’ best.

Sometimes, there is no best, just let it be then.

 

My father’s colleague passed away in his sleep.

The day before he was up and about doing his thing.

 

My father saw him in the hallway and they waved at each other.

The following morning he never woke up.

 

To worry what will happen sometimes gets you nowhere.

It’s easy to plan things but how they turn out is all up in the air.

 

So I’ve heard many times over, “live now, live your best life now.”

What good is worrying about the future if one can’t live well now?

 

Sometimes, even to live well now is difficult.

We all have varying circumstances, thou shall not judge, right?

 

It’s Monday morning and my thoughts are cropping up one by one.

I’m rambling but it helps me to lay my thoughts out as they arise.

 

Sometimes, I over think, over exaggerate, over estimate and I over do.

Time ticks and life just continues to flow.

 

I just need to trust and keep on going toward where my best is.

Not sometimes, but all the time.

This is so wise, Rina, and many thanks for sharing it.

Some time back I reviewed a collection of poetry by my good friend, Aberjhani, and in the preface he quotes the author and theologian, Howard Thurman.

'To continue one's journey in the darkness with one's footsteps guided by illumination of remembered radiance is to know courage of a peculiar kind – the courage to demand that light continue to be light even in the surrounding darkness.'

Your post reminded me of this. I feel sure that was the purpose of Jesus' Transfiguration in the New Testament.
