there is power in that one simple word.
its just a little harder than it sounds…
you know its over.
deep down inside,
you know its not gonna happen the way you want.
the writing is definitely on the wall.
its hard to actually say goodbye.
not because we can’t,
but because we feel we may not be able to live without.
we don’t want to use the power just yet so…
we have to go back a few times until we finally realize…
we have to play the fool until we finally realize…
we have to take a look in the mirror until we realize…
we have to cry one last good time until we realize…
…that its a done deal.
the pain of having to turn around and walk away…
the frustration of having to start over again…
the sadness of erasing the fantasies you created…
the withdrawal from all that good sex…
“goodbye” can start to look like a bad idea.
thats when we start to get comfortable.
actually being okay accepting “fuck shit”.
well i’m tired of “fuck shit”.
its time to bow out gracefully.
that same time can be spent rebuilding and healing.
see goodbye actually means “hello”.
“hello” to a new mountain path.
it looks dark and pretty scary.
starting over alone,
after being comfortable in “fuck shit” for so long,
can raise up every fear deep inside you.
when we find the strength to move on,
it opens up a new road that we thought didn’t exist.
the person of your dreams is there
the career with all that money is there
the endless possibilities is there
that’s the power of goodbye.
the blessings that come once we let go.
i think its time to let go.
…don’t you think?
