Drawing of a heard. Caption reads: "To live, to love, to let go."

Human poem by Iris Carden

To be human
in this world is
to live
to love
and to (often unwillingly) let go.

Faith hopes for a world
where we are able
to live
to love
and to never let go.

  1. So many things I don’t want to let go of…and cling tightly until I am forced to release them….only to find something better to take their place. Oh for the faith to trust that something is better is coming….💞
