We all have moments where we feel like the world is caving in
So we try to take deep breaths in, out, and in
Trying to contemplate our next move
Wanting it to go well but haven’t a clue what to do
Should we run and hide?
Or stay and fight?
Should we listen to our hearts or our guts?
Problem is, you feel like you’ve had no luck
… with either
So you start to consider
Consider what the best option is
A little familiar voice says give in
… just let it go
Run as fast as you can till you can’t run anymore
In the past, you’ve listened to that voice
Ran and hid without a single glance behind
But you made a vow to not do that anymore
And in doing that, I guess some things you’ve decided to automatically endure
But is that fair to yourself?
Stick to what you know, just be yourself
Run if you need to and don’t trip up
And sometimes just say fuck it and give up
Cause not everyone will understand your value
Not everyone will understand you
So what’s the solution in situations like this?
Situations, where you want to call it quits
Run and hide?
Stay and fight?
The choice is yours!
Note: So, today is National Poetry Day and this is my piece for it. For some people it is more than words, it is healing. Hope you are all doing well and continue to look after yourselves and healths. Much love Tanny xx
