Time To Let It Go

Updated on May 7, 2012

I keep searching for answers
But there’s none to be found
Everybody's waiting for the end
Problems make the world go round

My friend says, “It’s almost over”
I hear it every day
He smiles when he says it
It’s as if he is ready to lay

It’s almost over
But when will we know?
It’s almost over
It’s time to let it go
Time to let it go

There’s too many mouths to feed
And too many playing the game
Nobody has the answers
But they know who to blame

Could it be in your reflection?
Maybe that's too simple
Someone told you to look
But all you see is your temple

It’s almost over
There's no room to grow
It’s almost over
It’s time to let it go
Time to let it go

The more we want
The less we receive
No matter how much we try
The poor always grieve
God said pour the oil on my feet
Because I won’t always be here
He was right you know
The streets are filled with tears

It’s almost over
What debt will you owe?
It’s almost over
It’s time to let it go
Time to let it go

      yeah, you're right there Suburban...the cause of our miseries is not poverty but because of our inability to let go...

      @billybuc - Thanks man. I guess letting go is all we can do. There is so much out there that can drag us down. Just this morning I was driving in rush hour traffic and I told myself to stop focusing on individual drivers and see the entire freeway as one big monolith of which I am a part. It calmed me.

      @Deborah - Thank you and God Bless you for reading and commenting as you do.
