Let It Be
I woke up sad today.
Which, to be completely candid, isn’t exactly a new thing for me.
But instead of trying to busy myself with busyness to feel less blue, I broke routine by lacing up my kicks and taking a walk around the old neighborhood.
I waved to people.
Some waved back.
I paused by the dock where my dad kept his boat.
I listened to birds chirp.
I love how birds don’t think to themselves, “Maybe I should chirp now.”
They just stand there in trees, with their little bird feet, and chirp.
I wish I can be just to be.
I wish that for all of us.
Maybe it’s time to get out the old Zamboni and clear a path.
A path with even less resistance.
Because, as it’s been said, resistance is futile.
As always, we shall see what unfolds next.
