Let Go

Learn to let go
Of the things you hold on to,
For some things in this world
Are not really meant for you.

Holding on is a sign of strength
An endless battle of hoping.
But letting go may be wiser,
Sad, but liberating.

Cry if you have to.
Grieve, lament.
When all these are through,
You'll never cry again.

  7. True but soo tough to do. Sometimes you just canot let go despite telling yourself its the right thing to do. Maybe somethings are above right and just cant help it.

  8. Hi there!

    Yes it's SOOOO tough to do. I've been there. It took me a long time to let go of something I should let go.
