Let Go

It is anywhere, anytime
No specific rhyme
Her familiar frail voice
Once beckoning, now chiding
“leave me alone. You don’t need me anymore.
Bury me and all what makes you stumble.”
For a moment I see her clear
She is weight I have carried
She is stagnant water with no inlet nor outlet
A season long passed
I am no longer her
I have shed her skin
Two coats I cannot wear
Another has made me new

dVersepoetspub.com takes a look at narrative poetry. A place, a time, (here, in a moment of time), an observer (myself), a tense, (present), introducing with imagery, a lesson (discovery), a transformation.
Yeah, okay.


About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    What a tale you have unleashed – total transformation, or is it?

  4. Love the image of the two coats… once new you cannot be the old.

    Nice last two lines: “Two coats I cannot wear
    Another has made me new”
