let it go.

This is one of my favorite poems by E. E. Cummings. I think it’s important to recognize and prioritize what truly makes you happy and fulfilled in life. It is equally important to avoid what is toxic and negative – whether that be people, places, or things. Emotional or physical clutter, negative individuals, and unnecessary stressors should be eliminated whenever possible. Life is too short and too precious. … All that is just me speaking in general, not directed at current events.

Regarding current events, Kate Beckinsale shared this poem today on Instagram as part of the “me too” movement of empowering “victims” and acknowledging the widespread issue of sexual harassment and abuse. While I haven’t really experienced anything significant enough to warrant me saying “me too”, I do want to re-share this poem and add a message of love and solidarity to all the brave women and men speaking out. Keep fighting the good fight. ❤ I love you guys.

let it go – the
e.e. cummings

let it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go

so comes love
