I DO LOVE YOU SO I WILL LET YOU GO

by Noha

To let Go...Doesn't mean to stop caring,
it means I can't do it for someone else.
Is not to cut myself off,
Is the realization that I can't control another.

To Let Go....Is not to enable,
but to allow learning from natural consequences.
Is to admit powerlessness,
which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To Let Go....Is not to try to change or blame another,
I can only change myself.
Is not to care for,
but to care about.

To let Go....Is not to fix,
but to be supportive.
Is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.

To let Go....Is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcome,
but to allow others to effect their own outcomes.
Is not to be protective,
it is to permit another to face reality.

To Let Go....Is not to deny, but to accept.
Is not to nag, scold, or argue,
but to search out my own
shortcomings and to correct them.

To Let Go....Is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes,
and to cherish the moment.
Is not to criticize or regulate anyone,
but to try to become whatever dream I can be.

To Let Go....Is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.
Is to fear less and to love more.

And I do "LOVE YOU"

So I will..."LET YOU GO"...

I liked the reputition of "To Let Go" it really held the poem together and gave it a deeper meaning as well as feeling. The flow of the poem was just ok for me, it could of been better, however; the overall structure was great.

^^Oh this stanza reminds me of something I wrote a while back, and it is so true in so many perspectives. I'm a simple kind of man and I take life as it comes, I'm in no kind of rush, I just like to relax. Why can't a majority of the people these days understand relaxation?

Wow..

to let go
is a hard thing you know
that even you don't like it
you need to leave and forget about it

to let go
is a painful goodbye
and a thing with many reasons why
and as I watch you go
the tears are starting to show!

~a short poem to comment on your wonderful poem...

5/5

Letting go is the hardest thing to do most especially if you feel like you're so attached to that person and so most of us prefer to stay and endure the pain.. but this piece is different and i admire the content of it, on how you inspire the people to give up if they think things won't work that well anymore.. you wrote it with great devotion.

Wow.. this is an AMAAAZZZING poem.. i love the repeated phrase, it really adds a lot of impact. the flow is once again perfect and the ending is great.

the format is a bit tricky because of the unevenly sized stanzas, also the last part of the poem, you don't have to capitalize it, its strong enough in its self
