Hold on……..

I’m so afraid. 

If I let go I’ll drop

I don’t know how far 

Because I can’t look down

I’m so afraid.

If I let go I’ll drop

I don’t know how far

Because I can’t look down

Is there something there to break

My fall. You say it’s safe, you tell me to

Let go! What do you see that I don’t

Can you see the chasm beneath

The single step to freedom

I can’t see, I don’t know

So stop telling me

I have to let go

Of the past

  1. You let go when you are ready and some losses always have a powerful hold over us. Why do people feel the need to tell us this all the time? I think its got to do with them not having a clue really of how it actually is to go through very very difficult and painful experiences or losses.

  2. As long as you keep the past in sight it is safe to let go occasionally. You can always reach back and hang on again when necessary, and it is always necessary I believe. The more times you let go, the easier it becomes, but there is always that safe feeling of re grasping the familiar.
