Surrender begins like a fairy tale

In a distant land

Begins as a Dream unknown

scares us shitless

Surrender begins

a blanket with nails

We hang on … letting go no option

Hang on to the known

Even if that known is the darkest night

Even if that known has dragged us through the mud, left us naked in the street

Surrender begins with a whisper

A candle flickering, dancing, embracing the darkness that peers in so close

Surrender begins

With the mystery of an empty page

The words elusive the ink dry
Surrender begins

a map without borders

A voyage with no defined destination
Surrender begins

loneliness in a crowded room

fear, emptiness.

Surrender begins

With struggle

And pleads

I stand now on the other side of surrender

Knowing it’s grace and power

Looking out at those who cannot yet see

Surrender begins with love

With letting go

With saying yes to life

Surrender begins

With tears running down my cheek

With falling to my knees

Surrender begins

With holding hands

And hugs of understanding

Surrender begins

In this moment

In this place
