A couple of months ago, I left Facebook. My reasons being that I personally couldn’t keep my mouth shut when people talked and posted stupid things (stupid in my mind). Knowing my posts would possibly damage someone else’s feelings, personal life, or career. I just decided it was time I leave. But as time went on, my husband still being on Facebook, would comment on the pictures or things our children or extended families would post. I was missing out on so many good things that I loved about Facebook. So I decided to join again. Yet, this time, I would be very careful who I was friends with. Family, close friends, and people I admire.
That said, my daughter suggested a page and invited me to join it. This page “Mind, Body and Soul Transformation” is a page that helps you grow, and become a positive and strong person. Its cover phrase is what drew me in. “How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar”. Yup, that describes me and the changes I want to make!
Every day she gives us a task to do. Todays task is to write a poem. I love poetry and love writing it. So here it goes. This one is for the Mind, Body and Soul Transformation page and all its followers.
Letting go is not easy
I wish for so much more
Why can’t I see it
Why can’t I close this door?
People in my past have hurt me
Yet who has allowed them to do so
It isn’t them who dish this out
It’s I who won’t let go!
I wrote you down on a piece of paper
I told you that you had to go
I burned you till you were ashes
And then I tossed you to the snow!
Why are you hanging on to me
Why won’t you let me go
Or is it I who grasps your hand
And allows myself to hurt so?!
So once again I shall burn this pain
Yet this time I will mean it
This time I will never look back
This time I will not quit!
You will not win this battle of mine
I will close my heart to this madness
For only I can allow you in
Only I can bring me gladness!
To be continued forever…
