Surrender

the need to resist

to fight back

is leaving me

i have felt my head

rest on the earth

and i realize

i am

no more and no less

than the rest of her

children.

we all areĀ  as one unit

working together

or not

choosing to

find our highest expression

or not.

grateful for the choice

i finally relax

into being

one spark in the fire,

or one cell

in her body,

or one thread in her tapestry,

part of it all.
