Let it be

"When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be."

The Beatles, Let it Be

For two days now this song has been playing in my head. Two days to fully ingest the lyrics, regurgitate them, and reingest them once again.

I am finding myself completely full of them. With every bite I take, my own problems seem to swirl in my head. The dizziness is driving me mad.

How come when I find myself in times of trouble, the only people I hear are the people that I am having the trouble with? Never questioning or challenging the problem, just smoothing it over and covering it up, only to surface later.

Oh, if I would only listen to my own mother Mary. The one person who has the answers and yet I can't find myself to fully hear them.

It's time to start listening to her as much as I have been listening to the Beatles.


  1. If only we could all listen a little more closely to what we should really be listening to. I certainly know I don't listen as often as I should.

    I love that song.

  2. This song.. my God, what a comfort it has been for me. I hear it and I can breathe, I let it settle around me and wrap up into like I did with my mother's old bathrobe when I was little.

    Feels so good to read that someone else on this planet gets it too.
