So Long Self and I’m Letting Go

Tuesday 14 October 2008 @ 1:12 AM

Well, if I come across a little bit distant, it’s just because I am. Things just seem to feel a little bit different – you understand?

Believe it or not but life is not apparently about me anyways. But I have met the One who really is worthy, so let me say.

So long self. Well it’s been fun, but I have found somebody else.

So long self. There’s just no room for two so you are gonna have to move.

So long self. Don’t take this wrong but you are wrong for me farewell.

Oh well. Goodbye, don’t cry. So long self.

Stop right there because I know what you’re thinking, but no we can’t be friends. And even though I know your heart is breaking, this has to end.

And come to think of it the blame for all of this simply falls on me for wanting something more in life than all of this. Oh, can’t you see.

Farewell, goodbye.

Oh, so long self.

My heart beats, standing on the edge. But my feet have finally left the ledge.
Like an acrobat, there’s no turning back.

I’m letting go of the life I planned for me, and my dreams. I’m losing control of my destiny. It feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe. So I’m letting go.

This is a giant leap of faith – trusting and trying to embrace the fear of the unknown, beyond my comfort zone.

Giving in to your gravity. Knowing You are holding me. I’m not afraid.

Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe. Feels like I’m falling and this is the life for me.
