Let it Go

Let it Go

A Poem by Laconic Meraki

Every minute is closer to your last.
Don't get frozen in time reminiscing,
Let the past be the past.
Fight for your future.
Let yourself let it go.
Years fly by way faster than you realize.
Use pain as lessons- soil to grow.
You'll never know unless you try. 
Just let it go. Just let it go.
Life is gone in a blink of eye.

I'm not crazy about using the pronoun "you" to tell other people how to live. Nobody likes being told how to live. If you changed the pronoun to "we" or "I" this poem would feel less preachy to me. Now, about your message -- spot on. There's nothing wrong with revving people up for the rest of their lives, for urging people to seize each moment . . . but this same message could be conveyed by showing us how & why this works, using an example in storytelling form, for example: "this is what I did & how it worked out" . . . instead of telling other people how to live, show us that what you say about living really works. I like your poem & I agree with your poem, but I don't find your "rah! rah!" approach to be convincing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Really strong title. Yes, let it go. Don't carry the hurt with you.

Let it go, let it go
Let it melt
Like winter snow

Words from a poem I penned on the same theme. Life is just too short. Totally agree with the thinking here. Good work.

I agree dear laconic.

I agree dear Laconic. Angry and disappointment. A heavy load to carry. You are welcome my friend.
True letting go means the past can't continue to punish...lovely

Yes .. If we allow it to. We can learn from it or let it hold us back .
Thanks MOON!
don't let yourself get stuck in time, stop reminiscing, let go and and move on. there is so much to enjoy in life, in the future,that sticking in the past is for fools. If you don't try to let it go, "you'll never know unless you try".....nice thought and well written
Best, Betty
