Let It Go

If you love someone, set him / her free.

Sounds cliche and quite common, isn’t it? Who would be unaware of this (or similar worded) saying?

But what if that “someone” in the question is none other than you yourself?

Let me, however, offer a slightly different treatment to the given phrase, or the title, and show you the views through a slightly different lens. Perhaps, you will like the views. Perhaps, you won’t. But it’s worth a try, isn’t it? Who knows, maybe this lens turns out to be a bit clearer.

Let it go

If it doesn’t come back, it was never yours

Or, thus have you been told

Let it go

Let the past teach you, but don’t you hold it back

An artifact so heavy, doesn’t grace your bejeweled bag

As onward to your future, valiantly you march

Let it go

Give it some space

An unhindered path for it, thou shal’t pave

Before every evil wall, by the hammer of dreams, razed

A free space of clear thoughts for the swing, must first be made

Let your dreams soar

Do not try to be a bore

The society, as you say, may be “an object” of your blame

But prithee, tell, can it not be a mere facade, a farce, a soulless face?

Are you sure “you” are not a part of the same?

Let it go

Think not what will the people say

But ponder upon what will you, to your very own soul, say

For dreams unfulfilled by your own accord, the clinging despair

Right on the Judgement day

The waters may be uncharted

The terrains, uncertain

Dangers might be lurking at bay

Did the great Columbus or the mighty Vikings of the yore

Ever colonize their minds with such a lore?

The Earth is flat, your ships will eventually fall

Omnipresent were tales of that sort, reigning loud and tall

Did not Magellan dream

To find out how the world “beyond the horizon” feels?

In “mythical” lands, far far away, they say

In lands of ice and Castles of white, ’tis told that fairies stay

Don’t you want to ever dream, to verily behold

Such magical lands glitter and gleam, the sights nothing less than pure gold?

Stupendous it seems. But know the hazards before

For the path is filled with cold and icy trolls

No known one ever went there. Hardships you may face untold

Prithee, tell me, in the age of iron horses and paperless mail

Can you not atleast be informed of such “trolls” who may pose a threat?

Let your apprehensions go

And tightly should you your aspirations hold

Embark on a journey via twisting paths untold

Travel through the hedges, nay, meet the icy trolls

Take stock and prepare, go find knowledge in the digital scrolls

The “Mjolnir” of information shall raze the evil walls of doubts as you roll

From the bubble of the comfort zone, thou shal’t move beyond

And with the unexplored cultures and people, thou shalt seamlessly bond

See new sights, experience magical moments untold

As thou take’th the Iron Horse, over, sideways and under, ‘cross the Øresund to Helsingborg

The Dream Castles of Ice await you

As do the idyllic roads of Torino

You, however, have to let your doubts go

And to your fear or hesitation, you shall say an everlasting no

Let your doubts or fears go. Ensure they never return

Memories worth cherishing a lifetime, thou shal’t attempt to earn.

Sometimes, the society and peers are merely an excuse for us to stop trying for what we want to do. Sometimes, the demons lie within us, as do the will to eliminate the demons within.

Dream on, unleash the “Avengers” within, make efforts and travel more..!!

The Mighty River Po, calmly flowing in Torino (Italy)
