OctPoWriMo Day 6

This one is a little late. I had to watch some Youtube videos to get out of my own way around this prompt. Surrender is an issue for me and in particular surrendering guilt. Guilt is a black stain, it chokes the life out of you. You have to let it go to be able to get out of your own way. Do what you need to do to break through it and let it fly. What I'm going to post below, from Youtube, isn't the sort of thing I would normally post but listening to their stories, watching them get out of their own way and keep pushing until they fly, is inspiring. I was sobbing through a lot of it. I hope you watch it.

Poetry Prompt

What guilt are you choking on? Write like your life depends on it, put it all down on the paper, or laptop, but if on the laptop, print it out afterwards and then take it somewhere you can safely burn it and watch your guilt fly away with the smoke. It isn't worth holding on to no matter what it is. If you have to make amends, make amends, if you can't see yourself able  to do it in person, or can't for some reason, take it to a higher plane, say what needs to be said and let it go.

Word Prompts

Burn it 
Let it go

These people all had huge hurdles to overcome and I hope you let them inspire you to not hold on to what is holding you back. 

And for you to dance it out...
