Letting Go

I’m giving up my need to hurt you, for hurting me
I’m willing to pardon, to cancel the debt
To wipe the slate clean

To excuse, to overlook, make allowances for your behavior
To surrender the urge to “get even”
I offer you a waiver

I choose to let it go and abandon this position
To surrender anger and frustration
To nullify my irritation

Of feelings and emotions, bubbling just below the surface
To let them go, even though I know
What you did to me…was on purpose!

In letting go I will Not THINK or TALK about the situation
Though your behavior and your words, caused much
Resentment and frustration

Instead, I choose to open up my fist, lay down negative emotions carried,
To dig a hole and cover them up
Just like they were buried

Never to be resurrected or brought to life again, by me
Because in letting go…I am the one
Who is finally set free!
