Just Be What I Am

My life has been hard at times
struggling to speak since pre-school
stressful situations got you down
working life also felt excessively cruel

Took on therapy at various times
but stammer never improved very much
progress was short-lived never to stay
but always felt I needed a special touch

Even went to spiritual healing meetings
but they proved a waste of time
hypnosis helped in my mid-twenties
but took it only so far failing to rhyme

In conclusion, I learned one key thing
God made me to be what I've become
accept myself speaking as I do
learn to do that, beat my own drum

My healing is in letting me go
believing to just be what I am
remind myself to be kind to me
content yourself this I truly know
What does healing and letting go look like and feel like for you?

(I've written this as a poetic expression of solutions on healing and letting go of a struggle or struggles many of us may have.)
