Letting go is a must
when there is a lack of understanding, respect and trust
Don’t worry it can be done in a way
that soothes your soul and brightens your days
When you know you’ve been a vessel for connection and love
It makes it easier to release the dove
Sometimes things or people you’ve longed for all your life
may not be good for you so it’s okay to give up the fight
When you are not the priority of the other
whether it’s a lover, sister, brother or even your mother
painful decisions must be made
you were not built to drown in neglectful waters, but to wade
A glorious creature is meant to fly
and not always be in pain and wondering why
So let go with a prayer and a promise
that when you give your love it will be honest
treat others not as you have been treated
but extinguish the flames of abuse and defeat it
Love should be the easiest thing we do
extend it to others who deserve it but most importantly keep some for you.
