January 29th, 2022 -Letting go

Letting go is not easy
It feels like a defeat
Or perhaps a surrender

Be it ideas or people
Releasing our grip on them
Cutting them adrift to float away
It is never an easy thing to do

Saying I am wrong
Instead of insisting “I’m always right”
Is a part of letting go
It is a ritual of cleaning the slate
And unburdening the heart of grudges and hatred

Written for Linda’s JusJoJan and SoCS

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!
