#WednesdayVerses : Let go

let go

It is hard to let go,
Of things that really matter.
But often we hold on,
To things that bring us down.


For long, you’ve held on,
To the many things,
That others have wanted you to,
It is time now to let go.


Let go of your inhibitions,
That stop you from flying high.
Hold on to that dream,
Though it frightens you to no end.


Let go of those tears,
That don’t let you heal.
Cry now if you must,
But don’t hold the pain within.


That anger and bitterness in your heart,
You should let it out.
There’s no use of carrying along the pain,
Forgive and let go.


For often we let life pass by,
While carrying unnecessary burdens.
What really matters to you will stay,
If you only learn to let go!

Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt.

    You are right about the luggage we carry that brings us down. We do have to learn to let go .

    Yes, letting go is the best thing we can do for ourselves, yet that’s the hardest of all. Beautiful lines, Reema.
    “Cry now if you must,
    But don’t hold the pain within.” Loved these two lines very much!
    Joining this time for #WednesdayVerses with my entry. 🙂

    Letting go and unlearning is as important as embracing new things and learning. Well said, Reema.

  4. Shalzmojo says:

    Carrying our grief is one of biggest sins- we hold onto for comfort but end up destroying our peace of mind.

    Beautifully said Reema.

    Beautiful and so true, Reema. I loved how you ended the poem –
    What really matters to you will stay,
    If you only learn to let go!

    This is true for everything we do.
