Day 28, Celebrate National Poetry Month–Let It Go

Let It Go

Let it go
This I know

I can do this—yes, I can
I can lighten up from the inside out

It’s not a dare—not a threat
It is getting real

It is a declaration
Not with an escape clause

But with a resilience waiver
For the occasional detours of life

So, move—see—rest—sleep—be
Don’t just breathe—be alive
