Sevenling (Today I Decided to...)

Today I decided to be happy,
change my life,
act like my dog.

Today I decided to make up some words. Let's say:
I am not human. I am your shadow (only with skin).
I am now your yesterday.

Today. I decided to let you go.

  2. Oh I love it... especially: I am your shadow (only with skin). Sometimes the letting go is the only way to be happy...

  3. i don't know so much about the letting go though.Wouldn't know what to do without my shadow, rather like the girl. All sorts of unexpected nuances. I think your poem inspired me! :-)

  8. Once one is happy to let go do so so progress can take its own course at its own pace. Rightly so Kelvin

  13. Happiness is the way too go even if it leaves a little sadness behind.

  14. Your message is well taken, & true to form; we do have choices in life, we do determine, in our way, whether we will operate in an environment that joy can thrive within; nice job.
