Trying to let go…

Trying to let go…

I’ve tried to let go of the past,
But it clings on at times still,
A heavy burden of mistakes,
Of tears that I once spilled.
This past, it stays so silent,
For a small trigger it yearns,
For unwanted words, it waits,
With an evil laugh, it returns.
To let go of the past, I wish,
I wish there was an easy way,
To forget what once was me,
To believe in who I am today.

As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Reema and I have started this weekly prompt we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Welcome!

Prompt #23 is   “Let Go”.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
