Let go!

Image source
You’ve fears that hold you back,
Sometimes you seem to get a panic attack.
There are secrets that you can no longer keep,
Sometimes you wish you could just weep.
There is anger and bitterness within,
Sometimes you end up telling things you don’t really mean.
You’ve had a troubled past,
One that you’ve still not fought past.
No matter how hard you try to forget it all,
Into the depths of sorrow you always tend to fall.
It isn’t easy, I know,
But the best you could do is just let go.
The more you cling to the downsides of life,
The more it will hurt you as if ripped by a knife.
It makes no sense to spend a life remembering the sorrowful
When we have no clue if today is our last.
So the best thing to do is to just let go,
A better life you will soon know!
This poem is written for Set the challenge Sunday #7 at A prompt each day and for Day 19 of Ultimate Blog Challenge

    Really lovely and positive poem Reema :). Life is too long to keep worrying about the past and stay depressed all the time. Life must go on and we all need to learn to live each day to the fullest.
