Ever feel like no matter how hard you try to let go of something, it just gets worse and seems to cling to you? to the point of absolute absurdity? You've even tried not resisting ... and that didn't work either... Wits end I tell you!

Process of Letting Go


So random;

So bizarre;

This process of:

“Letting go”


It’s become a mantra,

Spoken each day

Whenever “triggers”

Get in the way.


The process:

Forgiven – Done.

No contact – Done.

Ignoring ‘signs’ – Done.


So I repeat

Over and over:

“Let It Go”, “Let it Go”, “Let it Go”

Let’s get over…


But life’s not fair:

Trigger here,

Trigger there;

Letting go everywhere.


In this weird space;

Strange frame of mind;

From being in such control;

To losing my mind.


I give it unbelieving laughter;

It’s all seriously unreal;

The more “Letting Go” I do,

The more the Universe deals!
