Learning To Let Go

The little blonde boy

Used to be full of joy

The world

Was his toy

He could play

And dream

All day

Every day


All of the things

He imagined his life would be

Made him so

Happy


But as the days zipped by

Like the lines on the highway

Life didn’t go as planned

And he started to get high


The dreams

And schemes

He imagined

He’d achieve

Never blossomed

And holding onto them so furiously

Coast him

Everything


He demanded perfection

And as a result

He never met his own expectation


And it seemed like

There was

No escaping


He made his bed

And now he has to lay in it

But it was tough to sleep

When all his crushed dreams

Float around in his head

And his heart

Feels like led


So he’d stay up all night

Tossing and turning

To stubborn

To let go

Of his fading dreams


He couldn't see

Passed his reality


Now

The little blonde boy

Who used to be so full of joy

Has tortured eyes

Where his dreams slowly die

His neck hurts

From trying to hold his head up

But

For some reason

He still hasn’t given up

He is trying

To adapt

To survive

And get out of his own head

And all of the lies

Because

He still

Has reasons

To try


He realized

That just because a dream dies

Doesn’t mean

That he needs to too


He realized he could chose


To dream again.
