When We Hold On

When we hold on,
We are surprised to learn,
Where we expected safety,
We find fear.

When we let go,
We are pleased to discover,
What we thought we had lost,
We could never lose.

When we hold on,
We are distressed to find,
What we thought we could protect,
We have destroyed.

When we let go,
We hold our breath,
When we face the fear of loss,
We find our hearts filled with Love.

When we hold on,
We close our eyes,
When we refuse to see the light,
We find our days filled with gloom.

When we let go,
We are propelled forward,
Where we had feared to go,
We now wonder why.

When we hold on,
We are frozen in place
Where we had wanted to flourish,
We now find ourselves stagnant.

When we let go,
We fall into Your arms,
When we finally sell all we have,
We follow You.
