Suddenly I'M No Longer Attached

Suddenly I'm no longer attached,
And there is something inside of me
That welcomes that.

Years of my activities,
And concern...
Would leave me quite frantic.
Feeling overworked, strained and burned.

I am satisfied with those things I've tried.
And making a footprint no one can deny.

Everywhere I placed my steps,
Not one did I do without dignity and pride.
I need no one to qualify my stride.
My mark has been placed,
Before and not behind witnessing eyes.
I seek no approval for my deeds neglected.

I'm not awed by applause.

My functions have been upfront.
And for some the intent,
Has been meant to be most personal.

I'm not a backside biter!
And that is a fact!

Suddenly I'm no longer attached,
And there is something inside of me
That welcomes that.

That You, Father.
As long as You are pleased!
With me and deeds I've created,
You have helped me make to leave.
