Short Poems

1. “Fading Away”
Memories we once cherished,
Slowly fade with time,
I’m learning to let go
Of what was once mine.

2. “Set Them Free”
Holding on too tightly,
Only causes pain,
It’s time to set them free
And let them chase their dreams again.

3. “Release”
The weight on my chest,
Lifted as I release,
The grievances and grudges,
That were once mine to keep.

4. “Moving On”
Leaving the past behind,
As I take a step forward,
I’m embracing the unknown,
And letting go of what’s blurred.

Medium Poems

Fading Memories

Fading memories, they slip away
Like sand through fingers, day by day
The moments gone, the laughs and tears
Now just a mirage, through the years

I know I must let go, but it’s hard to do
To forget the times, when it was me and you
I’ll keep them close, locked in my heart
And cherish them always, though we’re miles apart

The memories we shared, are a part of me
They shaped who I am, and who I long to be
So farewell my friend, until we meet again
I’ll hold onto the memories, until the very end

Releasing the Past”

The past can be a heavy load
A burden that we carry, down life’s long road
It can weigh us down, and hold us back
Until the weight of it, becomes a heart attack

But we must let go, and set ourselves free
Embrace the present, and all that will be
For the past is gone, and it cannot change
We must not let it, define our range

So release the past, and let it go
The weight will lift, and you’ll start to glow
With newfound hope, and a brighter view
The possibilities are endless, for me and you

Let go of the pain, let go of the sorrow
The present is here, and it’s yours to borrow
The future awaits, with endless promise
So take a deep breath, and let go of the darkness.

Long Poems

Learning to let go

Sometimes in life, we hold on tight
To things that we know aren’t right
We grasp at straws and cling to hope
Refusing to accept the end of our rope

We hold on to people, places, and things
Even when their presence no longer brings
Joy and happiness to our life
We hold on, ignoring the strife

We fear the unknown that letting go brings
We convince ourselves that it stings
So we stay stuck in our comfort zone
Never daring to venture out on our own

But as time goes by, we begin to see
That holding on is not the key
To a happy and fulfilling life
We must let go of pain and strife

We must learn to trust and have faith
In ourselves and the Universe’s pace
To lead us to where we’re meant to be
For our soul’s journey to be set free

In learning to let go, we find peace
And our worries and fears begin to cease
We discover a sense of calm and clarity
And the beauty of life’s simplicity

So embrace the power of letting go
And let your soul’s journey flow
Release the past and all that’s been
And let a new chapter in life begin.

The Art of Letting Go

Letting go is an art, so hard to do,
But it is what we must embrace to get through.
It requires strength, courage and trust,
For the past is gone, and the future is a must.

The memories live on, vivid in our mind,
But they are just moments, not meant to bind.
We must release them, let them fly,
And keep moving forward, with our heads held high.

It may feel like losing a part of ourselves,
But in reality, it is our truest self that delves,
Into the present, where life takes place,
And the future, where we can create our own space.

Letting go of people, who once meant the world,
May leave us feeling empty, and somewhat hurled.
But they were just a chapter, not the whole book,
And new characters will come, with fresh looks.

The pain will fade, the hurt will heal,
And soon you’ll realize, you no longer feel
The need to hold on, to the past and its pain,
For the sun shines bright, and hope will remain.

Let go of the expectations, that you put on yourself,
And accept that life is unpredictable, it is not an elf,
That works magic, and grants our every wish,
But rather a journey, where we learn to relish.

Letting go is an art, that only some can master,
But once you do, you’ll be able to plaster,
Your canvas with colors, that bring you joy,
And you’ll live life fully, and your heart won’t be coy.

So, dear friend, let go of what holds you back,
And embrace the present, without any lack,
Of love, of hope, of faith and believe,
And you’ll see how beautiful, life can weave.
