Wise Words

“Keep holding on”
You once said that to me and now
All I can do is think about how many times that simple phrase saved me.
The thought of you and your wise words whispered in my ear each night,
When my vision was a little off-centered and my eyes unconsciously glowed red,
I thought of you.
You told me to grow as tall as and evergreen tree
And
Collect all the birds that flew above me so I could capture them
And
Release them, So I knew what it would feel like to set things
Free.
You told me to keep holding on but ironically,
You wanted me to let go so
Til’ this day,
I am puzzled about what you truly meant but
I think what you wanted me to know was that
In order to hold on, you have to let go.
