Poem: Release

Breathe in. Breathe out. Deeply. Calmly. You can let go now.

 

You can let go of those fears.

They were sweaty, soiled hands, trying to drag you down into the dirt

but you’ve let go and you’re squeaky clean, shiny and brand new.

 

You can let go of those worries.

They were hungry vultures which swirled and swooped above you

till you turned the other way and they were distracted by your confidence.

 

You can let go of that pain.

It was a bright, blinking light, almost blinding your vision, not letting you look forward

but you found the strongest sunglasses and shielded your peace.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out. Deeply. Enjoy it. You are free now.
