Let Go and Let God

A quad-tanka poem by Shazzar Kallie

Let go and let God
reveal the way to follow
the path of His will
out of the bondage of hurt
into the healing of peace.

Regret bears burdens
of bitterness submerging
the soul in sorrow.
Love is the lighthouse that leads
to the shores of salvation.

Charity changes
the circumstances of life.
The giving of grace
will reciprocate mercy
that mutually mends all hearts.

Wisdom is endowed
aptly through experience.
Place the past behind
and focus on the future.
Forgiveness begets freedom.
