Let Go

from by Luke Janela



I was reminded
why i couldn't find it:
I was blinded
by the light.

I couldn't go out,
I wasn't sure how.
I wouldn't fight it,
I couldn't disavow;

I was alive,
I am alive now.
I couldn't stop it,
I can't stop it now.

I couldn't hide it,
I couldn't fight it,
day and night
I couldn't hide.

We were born wild and free,
not indentured to some tired decree.
You know I try to please everyone,
I won't let you down.

Beside me,
you were right beside me. But I wasn't around then. Couldn't be found then.
I wasn't minding my own bindings. I was on fire then, couldn't be higher than.
You who was knowing me, you would be half of me.
You would be part of me.
You were the heart of me.
Me with you blinded, you would remind me. You would be everything, we could be everything.

We were born wild and free,
not indentured to some tired decree.
Though your eyes can't see anything, staring despairingly, you find your way through doubt.

The stones that we throw break the glass of this town. The streets
are like a museum,
waiting to consume the young.

I find my way through doubt.
