There are some things inside of me

That I just can’t release

Things that I don’t really need

Yet I choose to keep.

Anger, hate, guilt and shame

All the secrets I hide away

Things I refuse to say aloud

Things I need to get out.

I can’t become the person I want to be

When I’m filled with things I don’t need

It’s time I learn to let them all go

So that I can start to take control.

I’ll rid myself of my guilt and my shame

I’ll release myself from the hurt and pain

Maybe I will find a happiness in me

When I let go of things I don’t need.
