If You Let Go
Author: Pamela O'Brien
I hear your pleas for someone to help,
I understand that you don't trust yourself,
So as a stranger who has been there too,
I offer my support and advice to you.
If you let go of this engulfing fear,
I will be here to lend an ear,
I think above all, you underestimate,
The power of determining your own fate.
Even when there is doubt as to who has control,
You must remember the human soul,
That is something that can never be stolen,
Only damaged and sometimes broken.
It is obvious that you wish to repair,
The injuries that were brought to you so unfair,
So already that tells me that you have strength,
And would survive the battle despite its length.
I cannot tell you what to do with your life,
But I am familiar with this painful strife,
And I of people did not believe,
That my angel of rescue would turn out to be ME.
