The art of letting go!

I shall never dare
With teary eyes she stares
The art of letting go
Oh! It shatters me so
Do they care? She asks
No! Replied the masks
The heart seems to sink
Upon the answer that stinks
Giving herself a pat on the back
She gets up with a sack
Sack that holds sobs
She throws up against all odds

    Letting go of anything, and more so if it is dear, is hard to do. But there are times that it must be done or put the will do it.
    This is a touching poem.
