The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.


I'm done waiting in the wind
Hoping that you'll one day come.
I'm done crossing my fingers
And gnawing on my thumb.
I'm done being someone I'm not
tired of letting my heart rot
I've still got a life to live.
I've got nothing left to give

I'm done with saying "I love you"
only for the wind to hear.
So I'm letting go.

Goodbye, my dear.

The author's comments:
After sitting down and thinking about the past year, I've realised I don't like the person I've become, so I wrote this poem to say I'm letting go.

It can take anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks. Just hang in there! :)

Alright I will.

I submitted three pieces, but they are still pending approval or something i guess. Do you know how long that typically takes?

I agree with what you said annesgray, have you heard the song "So Long Self" by MercyMe? I think you'd like it. It has the same theme wrapped around it. I can relate wholeheartedly and love this piece!

Favorite line: "I'm done with saying 'I love you'/only for the wind to hear."

Could you check out some of my work?
