Image for the poem Release


I willfully release
all things
that are not meant to be.
I willfully release
all things
that are not meant for me.
There is no use,
in holding onto things
without intentions of being kept.
Regardless of how much I tried,
regardless of all the nights I’ve wept.
I set them free;
and should they ever come back..
I guess we’ll see….

Author's Note
Not all things nor people that come into our life are meant for forever. They may stay for only awhile, or possibly forever. This poem is about letting go, and doing so in good conscience, no longer worrying about yesterday. Because it is just that, yesterday. Today and tomorrow are new days, and we should treat the present, as a gift. Live in the moment, and if it comes back, then it was yours to begin with…If not, you know the rest…
