Paradigm Shift

Email To A Friend

Its hard to do the
Paradigm shift
From a day of
Crying and pleading
To a moment of
Joy and acceptance

Its so hard to let go
Of my sincere requests
Of my begging to come closer
And higher
To suddenly believe
That my tefilos were accepted
That all will be well
That this year will be swell

You see moving on
Means letting go
Of my tears
My worries, my fears
To rejoice
In new beginnings
To embrace the Yom Tov of Sukkos
With joy in my heart
And glad tidings

And I’m not sure that I’m ready
Or want to
And yet a gentle voice inside me
“I am a Jew
And I believe
Ani Maamin
In a better future
In a glorious tomorrow
In a wonderful year
That begins right now
This very moment”

I will plan my sukkos menu
Ask my kids about their favorite foods
I will figure out the sukkah decorations
And any other way to get in the Sukkos mood

And I know
That I once follow through
It will no longer be an act
But a genuine celebration that connects me to each and every struggling Jew
