Outlet of Nature


Just let go
Hold onto nothing
Let life embrace you
And you embrace life

You can be upset
And cry like the rain
There’s no need to fret
You will still be sane

You can be angry
And screech like the crow
Into the night sky
Exhaling the pain

This is life
And its denotation
Encompasses every emotion
So hold onto nothing

  1. This is an excellent poem. There is a lot of breath in the first and last stanzas, with the tension builtwithin the middle two, giving the poem a sense of a long, yet conclusive, sigh, allowing the thoughts and worries to be released and for peace of mind to return. ‘Let life embrace you, and you embrace life’ – wonderful.
