Letting go of anger and shame, the self-made demons and inflicted pain. Letting go of self beatings and all the abuse. Letting go of memories I no longer need to use. Letting go of all who have hurt me. Letting go to be free. Never… letting go of gratitude and compassion, or my ability to love another. Never… letting go of the gift and responsibility of being a mother. Or the lessons and spirit of my own mother. Letting go with grace. Letting go to embrace… Embracing the present moment, myself and my destiny. Embracing the part of me that has suffered so, a helpless prisoner in my soul. I embrace her, to allow her, to just LET GO.
