Let go…

Well, has it ever 
occurred to you
when you peer
at the rear view mirror
on those moments
from the past
which passed you by?
Be it sweet,
bitter
or bittersweet.
And, when you did,
How often have you
Given a pat on your back
or praised yourself.
Looked up to you
at that full length mirror;
When you thought no one
could have pulled it off
Like you just did.
But, how often did you
cuss, bluntly blame yourself,
felt helpless, hopeless,
were remorseful, guilty
and thought you did
all that you possibly could
But the outcome wasn’t
what you thought it would be.
Or your prayers
didn’t match
the Master’s plan.
Well, it’s during such moments
does it rarely occur
that this is when
you got to let go.
This when you got to
let GOD be.

Call it co-incidence or whatever, but I have been revisiting past, and it has been visiting me for quite sometime. There were lot of questions, and emotions that you seemed to put in words here. And the good thing is, the last line gave the answers

This seemed more just like you poured your heart out.

Couldn't connect much but liked the first stanza.

i guess the best thing about poems is that you can interpret it the way you want to, and you can relate with every line the way it suits you. some lines in this particular write seemed like they were shifted straight from the pages of my life! thank u so much! loved d last line, 'let god be'!
