NOT EVERY THING YOU LOSE IS A LOSS
Don’t waste your strength, holding on too tight
To things that frustrate, or just don’t feel right.
If something that once brought you great gladness
Is suddenly filling your life with great sadness.
And someone you love who won’t treat you right
Is stealing your peace in the dark of the night.
Then really there is only one thing to do
Loosen your grip on the string that binds you.
For in this short life you will learn one great truth
The things that you loved in the flush of your youth…
Can look much less lovely with the passing of years
Without the smoked veil of your worries and fears.
To fly very high you must cut off some weight
And soar with the birds, it’s never too late.
How do you do it, well really it’s easy
If it’s holding you back, release and go freely.
