We must let go.
Of people and the expectations we hold them to.
Of the plans we make and the promises they broke.
Of the pain yesterday held and the uncertainty of tomorrow.
We must let go of the idea of changing others.
Of the thought that we can make them understand.
Of the illusion that we can abolish ignorance.
Of the countless times we see what we want to see.
We must let go of toxicity.
Of the anger we built up so high.
Of the sadness we allow to consume us.
Of the regret that stains our past.
We must let go of fantasies.
Of the power we believe holding on gives.
Of the idea that we are strong to do so.
Of the fear that life as we know it must change.
We must let go to be free
We must forgive all
And it must start with me.
One thought on “Freedom”
Love this! This is the type of poem that should be read every day whether it be in the morning or during the day when things get rough. I love you, my creative friend.
