Letting Go

Attaching oneself to situations, memories,
people, behaviors…it's so easy to do.
How can you not attach to people and memories?
I've read many things
about not having any attachments.
As much as why it makes sense in theory,
my heart isn't made up that way.
For better or worse when I love, I attach.
But sometimes, love goes sour,
the tides turn and life changes.
I've had no choice but to let go.
Yet with time, the initial fear of unknown
has turned into a sort of blessing.
Life is unpredictable…
and while I still attach, 
I also see the blessing of letting go.
Letting go has freed my heart
for new love and opportunities.
