Once you let go life begins

Once you let go
you observe things
that you haven’t observed before

The flower blooms
The skies become bright
The chirping of birds
appear like a melodious rhyme

Once you heave away the pain
you carried all along
you feel relieved
as if Hercules has let go
the world he carried on his back
a sense of rejuvenation surge down your veins,
a rush of blood
and it shows in your smile,
your eyes
and each one of your desires

You nurture hope,
you believe in love and
you feel like a soaring dove

So, shed away the pain,
do away with your yearnings
let go your past yore

for once you let go life begins

  1. Keeping the pain inside you does not fix anything. Replaying the past over and over again doesn’t change it and wishing things were different from what they eventually turned out to be doesn’t make it so. In major cases, when it comes to the past, all you can do is accept the fact that ‘Yeah, this happened to me’ and then there comes the power of acceptance. That’s how everything changes.

  2. You are exactly correct. Once you release and let go… it’s like living for the first time. Seeing things Anew. You can breathe, noticing the flow through your lung… the darkness is lifted.

    Excellent post, beautifully written.
    Just lovely 😊
