I LET GO

Exposed no longer a child

Quickly grew and spent

I heard them argue

They never reconciled

I clenched my pen

If not now then when

                         I let go

 

Ulterior motives created a stretch

The absence was alluring

Fortified by the knowledge and stress

By then the tears had dried

Your ego no longer blocked my sunlight

The warmth bubbled inside

I clenched my pen

If not now then when

                         I let go

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
