When you’re at the end of a rope and dangling into oblivion.. when do you let you go?
When you’re holding on to your mom’s hand and the crowd pulls you away.. when do you let go?
When you’re shooting an arrow aiming for that target and being afraid that you’ll miss.. when do you let go?
When you’re desperate because you have lost all your savings and don’t know how it happened.. when do you let go?
When you feel like you’re losing your special someone to someone else.. when do you let go?
When you’re friend decides not to call you and starts to ignore you completely.. when do you let go?
When someone close to you succumbs to a terminal illness.. when do you let go?
When you lose someone you love to death and can’t accept they’re gone.. when do you let go?
When someone keeps rejecting you over and over again.. when do you let go?
When you are at the brink of despair, when you feel the loneliest.. when do you let go?
When the pain is just too much to bear and you can no longer find solace in anything else.. when do you let go?
Letting go.. when you’re heart is free.. your mind is free.. your whole being is free..
Letting go.. when there’s nothing left to hold on to.. when the smallest thread remains in your hands..
Let go.. Let it go..
Because holding on forever only entraps you in a myriad of disappointments and hurts..
Because holding on does not guarantee your happiness and peace of mind..
Because holding on is no longer an option..
Let go.. Let it go..
You see yourself release that piece of rope from your grasp..
You see your hand separate from the rope bleeding from holding on too long and too tightly..
Slowly gravity pulls you back to the ground.. The wind rushes past you..
You see that rope slowly diminishing from your sight, waving thru the wind as if waving to you in goodbye..
Till it’s almost just a dot from afar..
And everything is in slow motion.. You don’t hear any sound except for your own heart beat..
And you slowly close your eyes.. accept the fate that awaits you down below..
