Poems for Healing

Lightly, child, lightly…..

Leave a comment

It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly, child, lightly.
Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though
you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen
and lightly cope with them.
So throw away your baggage
and go forward.
There are quicksands all about you,
sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear
and self-pity and despair.
That’s why you must walk so lightly.
Lightly, my darling…
— Aldous Huxley, Island
