I'll Handle It

Updated on May 25, 2017

i take it on

i relax through the fear

and rediscover

who i am


i listen to my higher self

rather than

irrational fears

and memories


i face it and relax

gently moving through pain

knowing that on some level

i can handle it

knowing i am safe

i am even supported


i face and accept my fear

and grow stronger

i move forward

dispelling the feeling

of hopelessness

and helplessness

and allow my strength to shine

and allow grace to wash over me

      i had taken a little "vacation" Russ and am just catching up, so happy I am to have found this poem of yours. It is absolutely profound, and honest, and I love it..your style is all your own and I hope to reading for a long time these great lines you seem to put together effortlessly. Thanks for another good one.

      Hi Larry, thanks, you really do get it. I wrote both of the poems quite a while ago, seemingly unrelated and yet the theme is certainly well connected. I've been going through some of life's challenges lately and the emotions took me back to these words. Thanks as always.

      ..." and allow my strength to shine

      and allow grace to wash over me..."

      Allowing one's self anything relates to your prior poem about letting go...is this progression intentional..? Where are you taking us..? I eagerly await your next...Thank you for another sensitive and triumphal prose poem..Larry
