Let it go

Depiya Thoudam
The anger that you stacked
One atop the other for so long
Has now become a part of you.
Why you have clutched it
Too close to your chest?
This was never meant to be
But it metamorphosed you
To someone you don’t even recognise.
Why you feeding your foolish heart
Only with indignation and anger?
Why wait for only
Other people’s love and acceptance
When you can love yourself immensely.
When your gum still tolerates your sharp teeth
Why you sporting forced smile for other people?
Smile with all your heart for yourself
Learn to accept life as it unfolds
Learn to live in the moment completely.
Most of all, learn to LET IT GO
That’s how a happy life is lived.
