hooks and sinkers

release those expectations 

weighing down your skin

like sinkers hooked in

pulling in pain 

by removing the barb

discarding heavy hope

of something you can not

control

feels like feathers under foot

as you walk through life

unaware of the next step

not anticipating one’s next words

relinquishing that which is 

not yours 

never

can you control 

another
