Let go

Let go of your fears,
just as the way a river
carries away a log blocking
its smooth passage

Let go of your confusion,
just as the way the morning
fades away, giving you a clear vision
of what is around you
Let go of your hatred,
just as the way an earthquake
ceases to exist

Let go of your hurts,
just as the way the sky lets go
of the night, paving way for the day

Let go of your ego,
just as the way muddy water
becomes clear water when mud
settles at the bottom

Let go of these, and your life
will be as enchanting as a clear, night sky,
decorated with stars and shooting stars

    I like it! Letting go is the best thing to do to bring happiness. Letting go negativity does enchant one's life. A good writing. Regards, Bhavna

    Hi Bhavna. True, that's the only way we can liberate ourselves from hurts of life. Our souls are our refuge. Glad you loved my poem! :)

    Hi Teddy, I must say - excellent write! I love how the words flow fluidly into each other making the read highly enjoyable. It surely would make life much easier if we can just unburden ourselves and let go of our fears. Well penned. I’m certainly looking forward to read more of your work. Vicky.
