It’s Like Letting Go

Another year

Here comes the frost

While families cheer

Others become lost

 

Dreary blue

And hectic grey

Just rolling through

These darkened days

 

It’s like the colours start to fade

It’s like they all get sucked away

It’s like there’s no ending

To our emotional rampage

 

It’s like walking through rain

It’s like trudging through pain

It’s like being trapped in the crossfire

For someone else’s gain

 

It’s like we are all lost

In someone else’s mind

Fighting a war

That’s being led by the blind

 

It’s like trying to understand each emotion

That runs down my spine

It’s like trying to understand each commotion

That screams through my mind

 

It’s like feeling too scared

To let people see

What really going on

Inside me

 

It’s like staying a lone wolf

Because people just get up and leave

It’s like feeling nothing at all

So no one can emotionally hurt me

 

It’s like promising yourself

As a child that things will get better

Only to grow up with a broken sense of self

With dreams only to be shattered

 

It’s like hoping one day

You will be loved

Only to realise

You’ll be cast out anyway

 

It’s like giving up

That part of yourself

That wants to be loved

 

Because no matter what you do

Or who you are

It will never be enough

 

It’s like dismissing

The pain

That seems always to be listed

 

It’s like not listening

To the blame

That seems always to be twisted

 

 

It’s like calmly accepting

What will be

And just settling

On, moving serenely

 

 

It’s like embracing the storms

In everyway

And letting go of the old

To send it astray
