Thing 2

Thing 2

A Poem by PoetryPenguin

My mind screams to let go--
'Let go of your pride,
and let some kindness show.'

I feel an internal struggle with my
mind and heart--
each telling me where to start.

I want to let go,
and rise to the light--
but a hand is grabbing my soul
and yanking it back below.

Maybe this Thing that I feel,
is something I want.
Maybe it keeps life interesting,
and so I don't let go.

But, this Thing is weighing me down.
I can feel it in my mind,
and it pinches my heart with a heavy sigh.

This Thing has a hold on me,
but deep down my mind screams
'let go.'

I enjoy writing, and I have ever since I laid eyes on words. I write when my emotions are at a high, and even a low. It brings out sincere words that hopefully can relate to others. I hope everyone ap.. more..
