Let Go (poem)

by Amy Li

November 6, 2013

Letting go is a process,
when the shock is over and the pain
starts to overwhelm.
It is a decision in the mind
yet, a struggle in the heart.

You breathe deeply,
hoping to ease the pain.
It decides to linger all around you
through your muscles, your bones, your cells.
It tries to take you over,
it tries to break you down.
All you can tell yourself is to never give in.

Listen to that music you always loved,
dance your heart out to that beautiful tune
as you swing, bounce, jump, hop, extend,
you will get it slowly out of your system
your muscles, your bones, your cells.

If your tears decide to visit you,
let them flow, and flush out like a waterfall in the forest
‘it’s ok and it will be ok’
the waves will gently whisper in your ear
‘you are just as beautiful as you always were,
after the rainstorm, there is a rainbow,
in your heart, in your eyes, in the sky.’
