Letting Go (Senryu)

Disordered Living

A struggle against lifes’ flow

Take His hand; let go

I have been in DBT therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder.  It is so very hard, but I am trying to let go.  With the help of God’s grace and faith and the Bible I hope to put on the “new man” as Paul describes it and be a model of Jesus in the future.

Senryu: same as Haiku structure but the theme is generally related to relationships or feelings while Haiku stresses nature

Seize The Day (Ya-Du)

 Let go, I say,

for today is

a play that steers

your heart.  Hear it?

Dont fear the hour, seize this day….commit!

The Ya-Du is a very difficult poetic form.  Greg, from Memoirsofadragon, used this wonderful guide to help him build his poem and I am stealing it!  It shows exactly what needs to rhyme on what syllable.

This is dedicated to all you patient procrastinators!
