Let Her Go
Let her go like a red balloon
by Francie Lynch
Released to celebrate;
Follow 'til it dissipates
Into the vacant blue.
Release the kite string,
The struggle with elements subsides.
Let her go as if she died.
You know you tried,
Some things broken aren't worth fixing;
Admit to yourself you don't like it,
That one day never comes.
Do not expect a certain result,
Life happens as it was meant to unfold.
Just let her go, like gossip, like fear;
Dependency is detrimental.
Tear down the museum of victim mentality.
Stop people pleasing.
Let her go.
