Letting Go

Never a wrong word spoken;
Never a misplaced step.
Not a single rule was broken;
My inhibitions were kept.

Locked up, strapped down, blown away
Into my heart’s abyss.
Secrets, I tried to keep at bay,
Were bottled up and dismissed.

Now the time has come for me
To expand and let go.
Fly the sky, swim the seven seas,
And let loose my self control.

Alcohol, drugs, and much more
Dance for my appetite.
My mind is no longer secure,
Danger, I seem to invite.

The transition, from teenage
To adulthood, is great.
Letting go is part of life’s stage;
To get back is up to fate.
