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
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
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
