~~Letting Go ~~

~~Letting Go ~~

A Poem by Debbie_Philly

Letting Go

 

I released my problems with exhausted breathlessness

as if helium was the magic ingredient.

A secret whisper with years of frustrations entering

each colored balloon.

Up they go one by one with a wisp of my breath each

one floating on clouds of fate and hope.

The breezy feeling of it all comparable to that of a refreshing

shower washing my troubles down the drain.

Anointed beads of forgiveness beat gently on my face.

Each delicate vessel holds a different pain.

A distinguishable emotion that has caused me distress,

anxiety, misery , sorrow.

I let them go filled with doubt and heavy heart, freeing

me from disillusions that have held me captive.

What a daunting task for these fragile creatures filled

with my manifestations of anguish.

Some may make their way back down to me from time

to time , that’s life.

Now I close my eyes breath in then out filling my spheres

of freedom, cross my fingers and then ……….

LET GO !!!!!!!!

Bravo. This is brilliant. What profound imagery! Totally relatable too. I will read this when Im feeling overwhelmed & weighed down by life. What a cool idea...fill up a balloon & let it fly in the sky!! Great job.

Wow, this was such a beautiful piece Debbie. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just whisper our problems into a brightly colored ballon and then wave goodbye as they float out of sight. Very nicely done.

Thank you so much Jack... your words mean allot... and yes... its a nice thought :)
What a beautiful image of balloons representing things needing to let go and then the releasing of them. I imagine a different colored balloon for each heartache and the sky painted with rainbows. Truly a lovely poem.
