The Hardest Part

The hardest part

Was letting go

Letting go of a long

Painful past

It was like

Standing outside of


Just watching

An outsider


It took awhile

But then I saw it

I saw the hurt

And the pain

I saw myself

For the first time

Before I was afraid

Of the confrontation

Afraid of being alone

With myself

Once I realized

What I was doing wrong

How I was hurting myself

I was free

Yes, freedom comes with acceptance... letting go ... wisdom or clarity, but all in all, a cleverly expressed poem. Much Love, Caroline.
