Letting Go

This weight is finally weighing on me
weighed me down
to a heavy piece of mess
that's going to take a long time
to clean up
to wipe off the dust
scrub off the stickiness
that is
the walls I've built
the tears I've spilt
the bricks I've thrown
the masks I've worn
It's time to unearth
the layers I've buried so artfully
so disingenuously
that everyone but I
saw through
It's time to let go
fall
like the last leaf on that fall tree
braving wind, weather, and will
really though
there's no bravery in fighting
what must be
and what will become
courage squeaks silently
on the fringes of acceptance
and
letting go
