WAYS TO... two poems

From our Poetic Asides prompt, Ways To...
I have two. One fun, one deeper. Enjoy.

WAYS TO TRAIN YOUR CAT TO OBEY

WAYS TO SURRENDER

Give it up
Push it away
that ego, whispering “me me me”
(like a bad soprano warming up)

Let it go
Listen to the echo
(the voice that says the world revolves around you)

Let it in
Breathe it in
Creation, the Creator, who loves you
(and only wants you to give love back to the world)

Come full stop
Close your eyes
Let love catch up to you
(you were running too fast anyway)
