When I let go of thoughts
about how life should be
I have room to be with life as it is
Letting go of things
to which I was desperately clinging
as I sought to create an identity outside of myself
in the world of my limited understanding,
I am now free to know the self within,
my true identity.
It isn’t a doing,
it is an undoing,
a dropping of disguises
a removing of masks
to reveal the beauty
of the wearer of the masks.
