    Today I burned my notebook
    And as I washed the ash rise from the flame I realized
    In that vapor sat 5 years of my life
    Up in flames went years of my thoughts
    my dream
    past lives
    past loves
    All disappeared in a flicker of light
    I have realized that in order to grow, I must release
    So today, with a pen in my hand, love in my heart,
    And tears in my eyes,
    I release all those who have hurt me in the past
    I don't forget
    I just forgive
    And make room for those who will mold my life in the future
    I make room to take that voyage to who I am to be
    In order to find what I was put upon this earth to accomplish
    I release YOU in a puff of smoke

    Ms.Understood85,
    Heavy poetical message, too many people are not able to receive the future because they can't release the past.

    Peace and Blessings

    Hey...Little Sister...Powerful First Post...
    The symbolism....outa this world
    Letting go...in order to grab a hold
    of endless possiblities of success
    and happiness...

    We should all hear this and feel the
    strength in saying goodbye to "yesterday"...

    Loving it!
