Let Go (Anchors)

We’re always too afraid of being struck down to even stand up.
We don’t understand each other, do we?
And yet we’re all on the same boat, and can feel the same harsh winds cut into our faces.
We’re all looking for something to grab on to to keep from drowning,
the anchors chained to our necks are relentless…
we hang on to each others’ chains with our own anchors,
and drag each other down.

So why not let go?
“It’s easy if you try” (John Lennon)
We can let go together.

Why not?
It’s terrifying to let go- sometimes the chains are on too tight.
No matter what, we’ll have the scars of the cold hard steel cutting into our flesh, but even scars can be beautiful.
Everything can be beautiful.

Learn to let go
Just let go
