- Let Go: : Humour, Inspiration - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Your hands gripped onto the metal bar so tight
Squeezing hard with all of your might
Clutching desperately this heavy bar of lead
While trying to keep above water your sinking head

I try to prise free your frantic grasp
But this piece of steel you will not unclasp
Your fingers stubbornly refuse to yield
No matter how much power I try to wield

Please let go of this bar that is dragging you down
Please let go, it is making you splutter and drown
Please let go, then you will swim so freely
Please let go, you will glide through the water so easily

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)
