Certain aspects of life are real conundrums,
situations we don’t understand,
they break our hearts, confuse our minds,
sends our souls twirling in a dark spiral.
We’re not meant to understand everything
somethings are meant to stay mysteries
which can be really discouraging
and leave us asking, “Why?”
But other mysteries we should be excited for,
the ones that will open new doors
and help us see the world in a different light
and experience a joy we’ve never felt before.
It’s quite hard to say, but the painful mysteries need
to be let go. It will take time but can be done, I know.
A traumatic experience I had, a year ago, I still don’t
understand why it happened, saddened me for weeks
and caused pain that lasted long after.
But I will let it go and start something new
yes it happened and I can’t erase nor change it
but from now I won’t let it control me
instead I’ll control my perspective of the outcome
I’ll do my best to see the light so
the chains of darkness
will no longer hold me hostage .
