The Fear of Loss

The fear of loss

is the anthesis of love

for love frees

and loss vainly grasps,

trying to hold on.


If you love, you must be willing to let go

of yourself, of your inhibitions, of your preconceived thoughts

of how life should be.

Although you can encourage behaviors

and entertain thoughts,

you cannot ultimately force one’s hand-

or, at least not for very long

or to any lasting effect.


Listen, engage, inform

be in communion with each other

and the here and now

but know that the now is just that

and the next moment will be something else entirely.


I, therefore, free you of your stranglehold

on the future and dare you to live like now

is the only thing there is.

Enjoy it while it is,

then let it go;


and may the peace of Jesus Christ

follow you in every moment

that follows
