It is often
so different than
we expect-
the way Life
and the direction
in which spirit
moves across
our waters.

We have this
sense of which
way we think
it should go,
and then the
tides change
and we are made,
to change, in turn.

Letting go
will always be
the easiest
and the hardest
thing you ever do-
it hurts to admit
the way it was,
is no longer

But my dear girl,
you were made
for what is,
and what will be.
And I promise
it gets better-
learning to dance
with those tides.

It’s not that the
currents won’t pull
quite so hard,
it’s simply that
you learn to find
joy and grace,
in leaning into
the change.
