I will let you go - A Poem
I will let you go
Facing life’s adversities entails us to be honest with ourselves, and requires us to be self observant. Developing a close connection with our inner selves necessitates us to look deeper and examine what’s inside…What do we really want? Why there is a need for us to confront these demons inside? Now, I’m turning a new leaf. I decide to let go of those heartaches, frustrations I encounter. Thus, I could go on with life and face the challenge with a smile…
Holding you close to me
Has never been easy
An itch on my back
I can hardly scratch
There were times you knock
The breath out of me, I just watch
My life is full of dread
Still I don’t know what I need
Do I want to behold you?
Or will I rather let go?
Why am I holding on?
The easiest way is to abandon…
Letting go of past ghosts
Will you look for possible hosts?
It has made me a prey
I was fighting all through the way
Where to now? I ask
From my past, I begin to peel off the mask
Now, I’m starting to untangle
Freeing myself from this jungle
Easing my way to reach out the light
Even if it’s far from my sight
Reaching out, I finally grasp the straw
Coming out at last, I am in awe…
