07. Exhale

Exhale

Exhale
Close your eyes,
Breathe slowly
And let go.
Do not hold on
To something
That has gone
It is over.

Exhale
Release the tears
Cry and grow
Then let go.
Do not withdraw
Die within
You are worth more
It is over.

Exhale
Sigh with relief.
Emancipated
You are free.
Do not return
To the past
Move on
Embrace a new beginning.
