Inspired this week by OSIbadge‘s prompt of


Is it letting go
Of feelings that drag you down
Just walking away

Is it becoming
The person you like better
Than you were before

Cherish that I have
Alternatives and options
To pick my life’s path

A fork in the trail
Not inclined to choose just yet
I’ll just rest here now
