Let Go


Let go. Let go. Let go.
The mantra of my youth.
The mantra never ends.
I hold on controlling the details.
I grasp tight making it all fit.
I suffocate myself with pressure.
My spreadsheets protect me.
My future plans blind me.
My brain just keeps going.
My heart stops.but then beats again faster.
Pounding. Pounding. Pounding.
My Soul.
Just. Wants. To. Let. Go.

Let go. Let go. Let go.

How? When?
What will it cost me if I do?
What will it cost me if I don't?

Fear stagnates.

And my brain just keeps going.
And my heart keeps pounding.
And my soul.
