It is Day 1 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words and I’m bringing you a poem, a free verse, more like, which brings with it the pain, the tears, a lot of heartaches but most of all, the steely resolve of a woman who is breaking up with someone she has loved, to go on a date with her destiny. Do you think she’ll make it? Will it work for her? Most of all—will she survive it or will she not?
Yes, questions galore, but only the future will answer them for her. What we do know is the fact that she is on a path that she has set for herself and that she is not looking back, no matter how much the past is tugging to her emotions.
‘Cause I cannot pretend.
Just how much it meant,
I gave you the best years of my life,
I must go, I have to walk away,
To meet myself, half way,
Beyond this chasm, this divide—
Between your expectations and my life.
I am done with that, and you very well know.
My eyes are fixed on the road ahead,
I’m meeting my dreams, and the stage is set.
Won’t blame the situation, to defy,
What’s gone, has gone,
What’s broken, won’t fix
I had to do this, forgive me, please!
We can only move forward,
I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019.
