Let go

Let go.


Wash your sins away

or your heart's vacancy will find

guilt, an ever burdening resident


Let go.


I'll carry your ball and chain.

Hold your tribulations no longer

you are more than your mistakes


Let go.


Your grip is no longer white knuckles

but, instead half attempted smiles.

I see your joy trickling back


Let go.


Overcoming this pain has set you free,

you are at peace with the demons in your head

simply because,


You let go.
