Letting Go...


I know too many strong women

who'd never see it that way;

they sacrifice for others every day

for their jobs, their families, 

but never for themselves.

They would rather die a thousand deaths

than admit that they, too, 

might like looking after.

It’s a hard lesson to learn—

to stop, to step away, to regroup;

to remember that NO is an answer, too.

Our insecurities haunt us…

Yet, it’s only when we give up the idea

 that we can control everything,

 that we can do everything,

 that we finally find peace.


We’ve been beating ourselves up for far too long…

         Isn’t it time to just let go?
