A poem about letting go and forgiveness.

A brutal stronghold,

choking the life 

out of me.

My tormentor is gone...

but why am I still choking,

fighting for breath?

I glimpse a  mirror...

I see I am alone.

Why can't I breathe freely?


I study the mirror

and begin to see...

I am free... I am alone.

Why can't I breathe freely?


The answer is me...

I am the one who refuses 

to let go...

Let go of the past.

Let go of the pain.

A guiet peacefulness

descends over me.

I release. I forgive.

I let go.

Determined to be free...

aahhh... breathing freely.

I can love, hope and dream again.

Tears of relief and joy 

flood my face.

I study the mirror.

Anguish is gone.

Replaced by peace.

It is not easy to "let go of the past." I love the ending that is full of hope for the future, Sheri. Well done. Love, peace, and best wishes,

Reviewed by Ronald Hull
It is good when we release our fears and express them in a poem by looking in the mirror and seeing that we are free.

I have soooo been there and done that!!! Well done, Sheri!

To forgive is divine and to move on is even better :-) But it's one heck of a battle isn't it?
