Times Like These

It’s OK to let go
you were born for times like these.
It’s in your DNA to know
how to adapt
how to change
and remain open.

The fear is real.
That’s also in your DNA,
but you were born for times like these
with a deep knowing
that fear of change
stifles rather than saves.

The love is also real.
That ache in your chest
is love expanding
longing to be freed into times like these
to do its work
of creating the world anew.

It won’t be easy
creating the world anew.
You must be steadfast in love
and bring as much grace as you can
into the midst of times like these
to make gentle the shift.

For shift we must
to a path of love,
releasing our fears
and embracing each other
along with change
so we can bring an end to times like these.
