Things that you love

Things that you love - by Charlotte Riley, Being Truly Me

holding on tight
afraid to let go
afraid of the void
if you start to say no
 
to the things in your life
that clutter your head
that crowd your vision
that fill you with dread
 
to the things in your life
that dampen your spark
that silence your voice
that keep you in the dark
 
be brave and say no
to the things in your life
that don’t fill your heart
where your energy doesn’t flow
 
don’t fill the void
although it is tempting
with stuff and things
that before left you empty
 
instead let it breathe
leave it to be
it will flourish
and maybe, just maybe
 
with a head, less cluttered
your vision clear
things that you love
will begin to appear
 
things that you love
will come to the for
your talents and gifts
to be yourself once more
 
to make your mark
doing what you love
things that have meaning
and not the above

It’s been a little while since I popped a verse on my blog. Inspired by the change of the seasons and the constant juggle and busyness of life, if words of this poem resonate with you, please share, comment and like.

Until next time, do what you love.
