Let Go – A Poem

I feel so overwhelmed again
by everything and nothing
In the mirror I see
the face of imperfection
I don’t recognize
the tired man looking back at me
The walls I built are failing
they’re crumbling around me
letting in bad memories
and feelings I’ve tried to ignore
I just want a little time
time to catch my breath
I’m not ready to face my demons
but this hurt won’t let me rest
New wounds added to old scars
how much is left of me?
How much more can I stretch
before bitterness is all that remains?
Before I’m just like the ones
who caused the pain?
I feel so tired
and suddenly old
If so much time has passed
why can’t I let go?
I just want to let go
It won’t let me go
