Letting Go

I thought I had let go

A long time ago

I let go of the pain

I let go of the sorrow

Even I let go of the joy

But not real joy

Only a facade

We played a good part

You and I

We fooled them all

What fools we were

Or maybe just I

Bought into it

Saw it as truth

Facades, facades!

All my life was facades

Sit still


Never cry

Never feel

Groomed for but to always go on.

  1. Letting go to step through a brand new door,
    to new experiences,
    new adventures!
    Getting to finally choose what stays and what leaves,
    life is opening,
    full of possibilities!
    Embracing the new,
    confident my foot is better placed,
    guarded from old mistakes,
    free to walk new paths!
