Let Go

I let go of everything
Just to see what’s left
I thought the loss of it all
Would leave me sad, bereft

I let go of my ambition
And my focus on the mission
It was causing much detrition
It was clouding my vision

I let go of my greed
Gave up craving what I didn’t need
To my amazement it freed
My mind from its selfish creed

I let go of my pride
That turned my Jekyll to Hyde
And decided to abide
As a realist, clear-eyed

I let go of my vanity
A source of much inanity
And embraced my humanity
To find my path to sanity

I let go of my lust
A fire that could combust
And lead to much distrust
Causing actions most unjust

I let go of all that I owned
Born alone, I shall die alone
The joy of possession I’ve known
Pales when I see how I’ve grown

I let go of everything
I answered an inner call
Nothing belongs to me anymore
Yet I belong to it all
