Letting go

yielding shackles bound
creates unsteady ground

toxin crafts its mark
defeat painted dark

anguish, fury, sorrow, pain
mood brands a barren stain 

clinging to injured emotion
is a threatening devotion

affliction I may not survive
however, I have not felt more alive

grappling with feelings, bigger than small
is better than feeling nothing at all

as much as I would like to defend
I know deep down this must come to an end

numbness will overtake me slow
it is the price I pay for letting go
