    I HAVE LET GO
    Of unhappiness...past pain
    I could'nt find the sunshine
    Because I couldnt see past the constant rain
    That always had me soaked
    So I used to stay drenched
    My struggles were my own doing
    And I was my own worst enemy

    But I Have Let Go

    Matured enough to finally forgive
    I no longer accept struggling and adversity...
    As a reality
    Have grown into an even stronger mentality
    No longer do I accept any amount of strife
    Nor do I welcome any negativity into my life
    There may even be those that wish me harm...
    Finally I have realized exactly who karma is
    I have given up the ghost of me...
    Like Christ did on the cross
    Like that brave Queen let go of her life...
    In the evil grasp of Katrina

    I HAVE LET GO

    Of senseless fears
    I have wasted many useless tears
    My prejudices
    My stereotypes
    My spirit...once a caged Eagle
    Now set free
    Soaring the twilight skies
    Free...from any earthly worry
    Gone...are mentally induced afflictions
    Now a stress and drama free condition
    Finally...the God within me
    Has let go of the old stubborn me
    I breathe deeply...exhale a sigh
    I exist freely...now I truly know why
    I can live my life...as golden as the day the sun was given birth
    And gave maternal kisses....all over the earth

    I HAVE LET GO

    Of those...
    That have claimed to love me cyberlly
    Those that have drained me mentally...
    Those that have sucked the life frome me emotionally...
    Those that have been selfish and just taken me for granted...physically
    And those that have tried to fight me pyschically.....
    Yet..couldnt quite capture me...spiritually
    Hand in hand with my Creator they can all get thee behind me
    Because finally...
    I have set myself free

    AND I HAVE LET GO...

    From this day forward
    The energy that makes the me soars toward...
    The illuminating and eternal light

    Happy

    Complete

    Tranquil

    Serene

    Peacefully....loving and enjoying me

    I have let go

    Have accepted the cosmic blueprint and plan
    That lost little boy has burnt away....from his ashes has risen
    A complete and total man
    Like the Phoenix I have awakened and I rise
    Clothed in the Creator's blessing
    I can fully begin to heal
    Once again I can start to feel

    Love...freely

    Live...truly

    Be...wholly



    Because...I Have Let Go

    With this piece I felt an unfolding, I felt a release of the negative, and in the absence of that...peace. I feel grateful to have read these words this morning, poet.
