Poem: Letting Go
Life is hard enough
without receiving respect from the ones you love,
admiration, kindness, listening, letting go of anger,
all traits we look for in the ones we love.
Often actions speak louder than words
ripping our hearts into pieces,
not thinking straight,
letting emotions take over ones mind
for fear of being too close,
uttering words one cannot take back.
Letting others manipulate you
in this manner
is not healthy, nor is it love.
We must have standards in life,
sometimes letting go of the ones you love
is all that is left to do.
"Let it Go" (from "Frozen") by Demi Lovato
