Shut It Down

Shut it Down

Shut it all down
The bitterness
The anger
The discontentment
Shut down the sadness
The loneliness
The worry
All of the rage
The hurt and the fear
There isn’t any need
You shouldn’t want any of it
That pain
Those past regrets
The burden has been carried too long
Take care to notice the weight and heft that has been added to your load
No longer needed by you
Shut down all of the feelings that are not true
Not right
Not needed
Step forth with your head held high
Even weightless
Shut it down
Shut it all down
Rid yourself and leave it all behind
Run hard and fast
From anything that you were once tethered to
