Letting It Go – Poetry

A poem about struggling with depression. It’s been a while since I smiled, laughed and felt light. I am writing my way out of the darkness into light.
Letting It Go – Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Where are you
Where is the
Bright light
That used to
Bounce off
Your cheekbones
To light
The sky
With love
Where has
The flame gone
That used to turn
Your lips
Upward as a cup
Ready to
Overflow with
God’s goodness
Has sadness
Stolen
Your joy
Is heartache
Holding your smile

What would
Happened if
You let go
What if
I told you
It was safe
For you to cry
And let your tears
Purge the darkness
From your heart
What if
I hold you
As you
Fall into the
Depth of pain
And told you
It’s gonna be ok
What if
You slowed down
Long enough
To be weak
What if
I told you
Transformation lies
In surrender

Would you
Let go
Would you
Feel the pain
Would you let it
Transform
Your darkness
Into Light
Would you
Surrender
Would you
Let the pain go
