“Let Go…” The Metaphor

What do you let go of
Your grief? Your angst?
Something that you thought was yours?
I always wanted to find this out
Every time after I say “let go…”
I tried to find its metaphor

So, what is the metaphor of letting go?
Acceptance? Surrender? Or just a sigh
But aren’t these metaphors of failure?
No do not be so obvious
For the freedom of letting go
gives a sense of relief…some ecstasy!

Often wondered in the darkest of nights
letting go is just for the frail-hearted
If metaphor meant “literal”
Letting go would mean saying “good bye”
Saying it with style… and what awaits
Is a new dawn!
