The Paradox Project – Five

 To Let Go is To Get

A king who’s never wrong,

has been standing strong

on his own bony shank

since he was young.

He lives in a castle

protects himself from any battle,

rattle,

trouble,

puzzle,

muddle.

It isn’t easy

to keep things under authority

yet than loosing any

he saves things carefully.

Feel bitter to get the better,

the super,

power,

order,

no boner.

Relax and let loose;

sit back and sip booze.

This fuss is no use,

even a dog won’t woof.

No peace but control,

leaving only pain.

Knowing how to play role,

maybe more bliss to gain.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. (Lao Tzu)
