Forget About The Outcome

Emotionally Invested/Married To An Outcome

I don't want to be so emotionally invested

In a person, place or thing

That I can't divest it and move on if need be

When called upon I have to let what is for the best

Supersede me

Scenarios have varied and I may pout some

But I can't be married to an outcome

I can't afford to be so emotionally invested

In a summer, fall or spring

That I pass the expected expiration date by winter

Letting go is perhaps the ultimate test

And tormentor

I used to have luggage I carried too long now I shout "dumb"

Back then I was married to an outcome

Once I learned to detach, divorce myself

And let the Universe dispatch

What happens to happen naturally and not let me be

Wedded & embedded with a beyond-a-doubt sum

I could live life happily

Regardless of the outcome
