Letting Go (James Leland Ludeau III - Lafayette, LA)

i hope that you are resting quietly
and that you've found the peace you never could in life
in stillness i've found my voice
i've found a way to let go of you
found my flame
finding a way to quiet my ego
and know realness
i'm changing
learning
growing
so i am putting you in my past
i can't have you in "today"
i've made my peace with that
so i will try to keep your legacy alive
by being the best man i can be
i'll honor you with my being
i used to be so angry when people suggested i should learn to let you go
and now i have learned
and in the absence of anger grew my peace

so i am putting you in my past
i can't have you in "today"
i've made my peace with that
so i will try to keep your legacy alive
by being the best man i can be
i'll honor you with my being
i used to be so angry when people suggested i should learn to let you go
and now i have learned
and in the absence of anger grew my peace

When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
