My best moments have been
when I left it behind
when I no longer needed it
when I was never going back
is far more powerful
than getting it
like approval, or a promotion, or a college degree
When you don’t need it
and step away from it
It totally loses its power over you
This is true for relationships
and previous ways of thinking.
As you step away from it
the more independence, you have.
It’s a huge relief
your very survival
no longer needs it.
Their opinions will change, when you are no longer there
Their egos will grow larger, like hot air
Their absurdity, will be incomprehensible
They will die, not knowing why
Their vacations don’t mean anything
Their empty words, don’t fill-up a room
Their lack of love, betrays, their non-existent heart
their shriveled soul
but that doesn’t matter to you
You can write about it, and you don’t have to carry it with you
They are there, still the same
You can write about the man who can’t look you in the eye
You can write about the woman, who doesn’t know, why
You wait for the right time, to walk away, and pray, that time is soon
the people say, you are never going to go
what do they know, right?
