letting go

Contributed by FireStarter on Monday, 21st September 2015 @ 07:09:40 PM in AEST
Topic: EmotionalPoetry

Breathe in and out
count to ten
Let all the pain out
thats trapped within

Close your eyes
and count back
From ten to one
dont lose track

Ten, nine, eight,
seven, six, five
Take a deep breath,
keep your mind alive

Four, three, two
your almost down to one
Take a deep breath
your almost done

The only number left
Is loneliest of all
Number one,
standing proud and tall

I actually breathed this with you!
Your closing 4 lines say it all:
"The only number left is loneliest of all, number one, standing proud and tall."
Alone I think doesn't have to be lonely--compared to some company I have known, "alone" sounds like a vacation!!
Keep standing tall; it makes it easier for the world to find you. Put yourself out there, and be at your gracious best when someone gets curious enough to knock. You have much to offer; don't let anyone rush you.

Grabbed me by the balls. Thank you.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
