Trusting life

The tree knows to shed it's leaves
when a season has comes to an end.
Nature is aligned with the impermanence
of all things and acts accordingly.

When things fall apart in our lives,
the season has ended for us too.
But our tendency is to hold unto our dead leaves,
going against the wheel of life.
Stubborn egos and frightened hearts
cause us to cling to our illusions.
Though our leaves have already crumbled;
fear keeps us stuck in denial.
If we could hear our soul has to say,
we'd stop clutching yesterday's lessons,
cease our efforts to get our way,
and trust the mysterious way life works.
