Give Way

It’s strange sometimes

The distance, space

Around us

How it gives way

As we all move

In different directions

Here and there

Back and forth

But always within

The confines

Of what we know

Do we dare

Break these lines

Step out

Into something

We may not


To taste

A life free

Of this need

For structure



give way


  1. To me, the only way to do this is to give yourself up to a Higher Power, even if you can’t see it. Without doing this any time we try to do what you’re proposing, we are still us, our egos, our pasts and trajectories, our likes and fears. It’s like a losing yourself (for God) to find it kind of thing.

  2. Excellent thought. We go in so many directions and yet stay confined without daring to go beyond or in a different direction. Reminds me of my tree post when I saw the various branches going in so many directions, daring to stretch themselves beyond. Thanks.
