Giving Taking and Letting Go

Sick Woman, 1665, by Jan Steen


In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.  ~Author Unknown


Of all the comforts that I have been given
and every prescriptions I have taken
the medicine of simply letting go
has been the truest remedy of them all.

  4. Is that letting go? That can be a very difficult and valuable thing to learn! That's a little gem of wisdom to keep in mind.

  8. This makes me think of the saying:

    "Let go and let God."

    I agree that letting go is a good thing to strive for.

  25. A cure for many ills I think. Your poem works with the image too - I am probably being unfair on the doctor, but I do feel an urge for him to let go of her hand!
