Twas never about

Whether or not you liked me

I had to love me

Turned away from your closed door

Savoring all the options

brick wall

Changing another

You’re better off letting go

Than wasting your time

People change if they want to

Not because you want them to

Set down the baggage

You’ve been carrying around

For too long a time

No need to unpack

Nothing fits you anymore

You’ve outgrown this stuff

Let yourself feel free

Recognize your hands again

And high five yourself

be careful


You’re walking away

Giving power to your life

Because you have to

Keep it about you

Leave another out of it

Own your decisions

When you lay down blame

Pointing fingers all around

Drains you of power

You may have been pushed

To leave that life behind you

You have to agree

At some point you wished

For your life to honor you

Sometimes things will change

At the point you knew

Exactly why you had walked

Is what made your point
