letting go


this is not about a person, lest it seem morbid.
this is about feelings.
this is for a friend, who is struggling to let them go.
i am praying for that friend, because i know how difficult this is.

•  •  •  •  •  •  •  •  •  •

my heart beats, standing on the edge
but my feet have finally left the ledge

like an acrobat
there’s no turning back

i’m letting go
of the life i planned for me
and my dreams
losing control
of my destiny
feels like i’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
so i’m letting go

this is a giant leap of faith
trusting and trying to embrace

the fear of the unknown
beyond my comfort zone

i’m letting go
of the life i planned for me
and my dreams
losing control
of my destiny
feels like i’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
so i’m letting go

giving in to your gravity
knowing You are holding me
i’m not afraid

feels like i’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
feels like i’m falling and this is the life for me
