The more I tried to capture happiness…

Bottle it up forever in a single moment…

The harder it was to keep.

Always a step away from me.

But the moment I let you fully go…

Stopped trying so hard to hold on and faced my fears of preventing any growth…

Love flooded in…as if it was waiting on me.

Waiting for me to see…

Life could be beautiful and meaningful…

Without planning an escape route for every outcome…

Without desperately clinging onto something or someone that was long gone…

The pressures and stress…melted away.

Revealing a beautiful truth.

My heart was telling me this whole time…

Let go.

Trust.

I got this.

I have you.

I tried to catch lightning in a bottle…

Chasing you and chasing the memories until my legs could stand no longer.

Until my arms fell under the weight…

But it wasn’t until I let you go…

That peace would find me.

Failed were all my perfectly planned strategies..

And I just…

Let what was meant to happen…

Be.
