I’m Letting it Go [Again] | Short Poem Remix Number 30

I’m letting it go [again] 

(letting go). 

All the same familiar things  

(letting go). 

My friends – all acting the same 

(letting go). 

My friends – playing the same game 

(letting go).

I"m letting it go again

I’m letting it go [again] 

(letting go). 

All the same familiar things  

(letting go). 

My friends – all acting the same 

(letting go). 

My friends – playing the same game 

(letting go).

I thought it’d change last night  

(not letting go). 

I’m gonna make this right 

(not letting go). 

I’m gonna win this fight 

(not letting go). 

. . . 

. . .I just wanted to make it right. . .  

. . . 

. . .(it’s, gone). . . 

. . . 
 

Why do we run our lives in inside circles 

always spinning and reliving the past; 

We are reaching for what we thought we lost

while losing what could have been in our grasp.
