Let It Go

How do you sit amongst nature 
and call yourself beautiful?
How can you be around 
conversations and call yourself 
sociable?
How is it possible to see hands 
interlocked, eyes deep in lust, 
wonder, and excitement and 
not believe in love?
No not love, a chance at love.
Not even love, happiness or 
hope even for a little bit.
Why can’t you give yourself a 
chance?
Why can’t you consider allowing 
yourself to partake in uplifting 
opportunity?
Let’s think.
Men climb the tallest mountain 
in the world,
Women, whom doctors profess 
unable, give birth.
Not only can blacks vote, we 
can vote for one.
There’s a child struggling for 
hope, happiness, and a home,
But you can’t give me your 
hand.
It’s all matters of the mind, you 
see.
Pay attention to your heart.
Where have you been?
Why did you leave?
And why go back,
You've become anew.
Why hold your fears as a 
priority?
Fear does nothing but limit,
Fear teaches nothing but 
excuses.
Is it really fear or letting your 
mind stay suspended?
Your trunk of an imagination 
claims these dreams lacking 
leaves.
Stare at the naked branches all 
you please but they won’t 
appear with the breeze.
Wait, there’s a leaf, it’s 
different from your previous.
Its bright green, but a little 
worn.
It’s a start.
A start to rebuilding and 
remembering.
There’s another only two steps 
away, why not take it?
It’s a little out of reach, two 
steps and you’re there.
You’re not leaving your tree, 
you’re bettering it.
Clothe your mind and soul with 
what the wind blows in.
It’s definitely different, but who 
says it’s not time for a change?
They say- If you want 
something you’ve never had, 
you must do something you’ve 
never done.
But you can hold the same 
aspirations just make a few 
adjustments.
You could find someone to 
genuinely support those 
There’s a whole world you’ve 
yet to see,
Step outside your backyard. 
Step into the unknown to 
eliminate the unknown within 
yourself.
How do you sit amongst nature 
and call yourself ugly?
How can you be around 
conversations and call yourself 
a loner?
Explore happiness.
Engage yourself, no.
Submerge.
You’re trying to stay afloat,
But is it really worth the wasted 
strength?
