Poem: Letting Her Soul Soar

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Letting her soul soar is a poem about a woman understanding she is happy she took a chance on love and was faithful to her man. She realizes she did too much for him allowing him to take her for granted. She is tired of the past keeping her chained down, so she is releasing herself letting her soul soar.

"Taking Back My Life" by Kimberly Caldwell


Letting Her Soul Soar

She is happy she chose
to love him,
setting her life apart
giving only unto him.

But her one regret
was doing everything for him,
making it too easy
for him to take her for granted,
a hard lesson she learned.

She's tired of the past
holding her back,
she's releasing those chains,
letting her soul soar.

Yesterday is no longer,
it's a fleeting memory to cherish,
a learning experience to embrace
as she begins a fresh new life,
tailor made for her.

"Today My Life Begins" by Bruno Mars

Bittersweet, she gives up everything for him, then he takes her for granted. It's good that she takes back her life, though.

Excellent poem, Brenda.
