Goodbye - Poem by Dawn Marie Snyder

Well today is the day we say goodbye to our fears and ourselves
For it is once again time to evolve into something real
Something that no one will know or believe
For I am striving for something to be.

As time goes by, we all need to reflect
Reflect on the bad times as well as the good ones
For it’s our reflection of our past
That makes us who we are

For the past is something we cannot hide
But we should never fear
For it has made us stronger, faster
As well as smarter and we should learn from it

Without the past, we are lost on the road of life
A life without memories is like a road with no cars
For we are empty without them

It’s not what happened to you
But how you reflect and evolve
From all the mistakes of your past.

You should be thankful for all your mistakes
Because without them you would not be the person you are now
Our past changes us so we can hold onto our future
And make certain detours and changes

Life does not always go as planned
But it’s the detours that make life interesting
We tend to hold on just a little bit too long
And we sometimes miss what good things are around us

Love tends to come and go
And opportunity may only knock once,
And if we are holding on and waiting
We just might miss the love of a lifetime

Sometimes the answers
We already know
And you do not need
To ask the question.

For all that we know
Today may be all
We have and certain leaps
May need to be made

If we can not make these leaps
Then we are not living in today
Yet we are living in the past

Afraid to make mistakes
Afraid to take a chance
But settling with the life that is known
Instead of the unknown.

Walking into the unknown can be the cure
Not the curse.
Life is full of surprises, some of the best things in life
Come when you a not looking for them

Let go, reflect, and evolve
That’s what we are meant to do
We are meant to live and learn

If we can not let go of the past
Then we cannot breathe for it is suffocating us
For we are not moving forward, but are standing still.

Say goodbye to yesterday and hello to the unknown
Be thankful for all the bad memories
And look forward to the good ones to come
Let go of yourself and say goodbye
