Let Go

Far from a shared state

Screaming out as you wait

Trying to let go of sadness

As you throw away hate

Still not knowing your potential fate

Let go of your past

Let go of your future

Let go of your sorrow

Let go of the New Year

For it is not happening

It is not here

It is not anywhere

It is not near

You write to a beat, the one inside you

You write to a story, letting the words guide you

Asking for forgiveness

Asking for answers

Asking for questions

Fearing the man’s lour

Who does he lour

If only you hear him

Who does he bother

When it is you that fear him

Let go you beg

Let go you ask

As you sip what heaven gives you

A seemingly daunting task
