Letting Go of Negative Thoughts

Letting Go of Negative Thoughts

Are you dealing with any negative thoughts right now that are weighing you down?

Most people I know are.

Negative thoughts take up a lot of time and energy. Maybe it’s time to let them go.

Here’s a poem I wrote about doing just that.


 I began gaining weight 

A long time ago

I held on to heavy thoughts 

And wouldn’t let go


Oh, nice things came in

But I often ignored ‘um

I wouldn’t believe them

Or they caused me boredom


But the negative, nasty 

Hurtful, and harmful

Cutting and stabbing 

And even remorseful…


They’re the ones 

I remembered them all

From when I was short

To when I got tall


And they blocked out the light

And they weighed down the day

And for the longest time

Wouldn’t go away


And the weight that they added

The burden I bore

Sometimes stopped me

From accomplishing more


Then one day it happened

Don’t know how or why

I began to ignore them

And one by one said goodbye
