Let go.

I let go. Let go off old smiles and put on new ones. Might look fake to you now, but soon you’ll get used to them. For all you know, they might just start looking real after a while. I let go. Let go off the memories that stuck to me like on old spider’s web. It was tough taking them off. One by one. One stickier than the other. But I managed to get them all off. You might see a few here and there, coz they’ve gone deep down into the skin. Finding a place for itself, like a home of its own. So they might remain. But not for too long, for sure. Coz I need to take them off too. I have no space for anything old anymore. I let go. Let go off all that’s old, disturbing and useless. I need them no more. I need to move on. I let go off old butterflies. Let them fly off. They danced in vain. Fluttered, but in pain. I almost killed them. Coz I didn’t need them. But I loved their moves, loved the songs. And so I just let them fly. To find a place where they can stay, where nobody tells them to go away. I let go off the shine in my eyes. I let go off the tears that they held. The dreams that they saw. Don’t call them dead, coz they’re just quiet. They speak no language. They see no dream. But they aren’t dead. I just let go off the life in them. I let go off the lump in my heart. The knot in my throat. I let go off all that’s stopped me from being me. I let go. Let go off the hope that put me to sleep. Hope that never saw the light of the day. Hope that spoke the language I knew. And said everything I ever wanted to hear. I let go. All that wrote a story called me. Or a chapter maybe. I turn the pages, smell a fresh new leaf. I let go the past. The future I see.

I want to do so too. But unfortunately some memories, never seem to really let go. It would be so easy if there was a delete button for the brain! Let us know how far u go. :) BTW your writing is very good, keep at it.

Hi,
Chanced upon this blog, struck a moment after seeing the title of the blog 'Destiny Awaited' resembling my blog 'Destiny Calling', more than that the name the bloggers share.

I am madly passionate about horses and horseracing thus cannot be compared to your blog. Read few poems (kavithas) you penned in your blogs at an stage, discontinued later. It is astonishing whether one can be heart out in such a way? Are you a character in reality? Just go back to your earlier pages and try to continue writing show the world what you are 'when best'.

God bless you, and your well wishers.

Simple,flawless and interesting post.Blessed are the ones who can give words to their feelings.

If you are able to identify what u want to let go..then u are already free from it.

To a person like me finding out what to LET GO itself is big mystery.Pains borne out of events beyond our control,accidents,emotional turmoil leave deep marks on our souls.Like all others i too ignore all pain, put up fake face and live a make believe life..after some time one forgets the difference between his real self and his fake life.
