Let it go…

March 6, 2014

It is amazing as I look back Disney has always been a guiding light in my life. It seemed that there was always a new movie that fit perfectly into the events in my life about the time the movie was released. I would look to these characters and their stories both as an escape from reality and with hope that I would be consoled, fulfilling my hope of my happily ever after. I really thought that this long standing affair with Disney would be left to my childhood; however, I find that it continues to follow me well into adulthood.


Let it Go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight

Not a footprint to be seen

A kingdom of isolation,

And it looks like I’m the Queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside

Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see

Be the good girl you always have to be

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go

Can’t hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn away and slam the door

I don’t care

What they’re going to say

Let the storm rage on,

The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance

Makes everything seem small

And the fears that once controlled me

Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do

To test the limits and break through

No right, no wrong, no rules for me

I’m free

Let it go, let it go

I am one with the wind and sky

Let it go, let it go

You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand

And here I’ll stay

Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground

My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around

And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast

I’m never going back,

The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go

And I’ll rise like the break of dawn

Let it go, let it go

That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand

In the light of day

Let the storm rage on,

The cold never bothered me anyway

I often find I am trying to see myself through the eyes of someone else. RSD has caused me to become isolated from even myself. My family does not recognize who I have become. In reaching out to others in the community, trust is given freely. People find out who you really are. This song strikes me to mirror RSD. It speaks of isolation, rediscovery of oneself, learning a new life and not looking into the past! Not letting others define who you are is a difficult feat but if you just let it go, the possibilities are endless!
