Sweet Surrendered

Source

Sometimes there are things holding us back either a person, a thing, or yourself. This is a poem of letting that part that's holding you back go.


I surrender to you

You are my armor

That I am letting go of

You are everything that

Holds me back

From me

And when each piece is

Stripped

I feel more free

Like who I was meant to be

Cut away from your binds

And your accusations

Your persecutions

Can't hurt me anymore

My wings can spread

And my body can flow

In the waves that envelop me

And in the darkest night

When I hear your faint whisper

Calling me back

I will know what I fought off

To set me free

You will always be my

Gentle reminder

Of who I was before

I set myself free

Love can be so universal. Poetry from the heart. Love can make us be more of who we need to be, who we are meant to be ... to that special person in our life. I love your poetry. Thank you for sharing. :)

Such a strong, empowering poem! I love this - there is so much strength and independence here, and yet there is no compromise of femininity. I especially love the image of: My wings can spread/And my body can flow/In the waves that envelop me. Your words are inspired, and inspiring - Voted up and beautiful!

c21,

I too have been freed from who I was except the breaking of bonds was less like me breaking free and more like being cut loose at 65000 feet and plummeting to earth check out my 3 part web series or at least check out part 1 for better clarification on what I mean...
