Let It Go!

Forgive the hurt, release your pain

Embrace the here and now today

No looking back, without delay

Create your joy and then maintain

Harmony’s pleasing to attain

Have peace of mind around the clock

Euphoric state will be a shock

Decide to change your condition

Right here, right now, grant permission

Free the emotional gridlock

The Final Hour

softly she whispered

as her final hour had come,

she transitioned to

a place where pain and sadness

are gone, never to return.

and a bit unnerving

storm is brewing
