Walking Away


ALL THESE YEARS,
I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING I HAD,
FROM MY DEVOTION,
TO MY HOPE AND AMBITION,
THOUGH MY TRUST HUNG BY A THREAD,
I STILL GAVE U THAT,
I GAVE AWAY MY EGO,
N LIVED A LIE,
FOR YOU.

NOW AS I SIT IN SOLITUDE,
FAR AWAY FROM THOSE TROUBLED WATERS,
I REMINICE ABOUT THOSE YEARS,
AND REALIZED,
I NEVER GOT ANYTHING IN RETURN,
FOR TRUST,
I GOT DECEIT,
FOR LOVE,
I GOT HATE,
FOR EVERYTIME I SPOKE UP,
YOU WOULD BEAT ME BACK DOWN,
AND WHEN YOU COULDN’T,
YOU WENT FOR THE HEART,
EITHER WAYS,
YOU ALWAYZ WON,
AS I BACKED DOWN,
I REMAINED TORN,
FOR I WAS LIKE A TORTURED ANIMAL,
WISHIN TO ESCAPE,
BUT I COULDN’T,
FOR EVEN A TORTURED DOG,
REMAINS TRUE TO IT’Z MASTER.

BUT 2DAY,
I HAVE CRIED MY LAST TEAR,
N THE MIST FROM MY EYES HAVE CLEARED,
THIS DECISION IS LONG OVERDUE,
N IT’Z TIME FOR ME TO START ANEW,
WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE,
I HAVE NO CLUE.

BUT TO MYSELF,
I HAVE 2 REMAIN TRUE,
COZ ON THIS DAY,
I’VE DECIDED TO WALK AWAY,
SOMEDAY,
I MIGHT RETURN,
BUT TILL THAT DAY,
I’M WALKING AWAY.

    I think your poem speaks for a lot of people out there. Your words ring true but, this poem is very sad. I am glad you are walking away. Don’t make the same mistake and return again some day. Start anew that’s what you should do! (Report) Reply

    absolute wonderful i really ike that i can feel the hate towards the other person..
    yet again abbreviations when needed i say this bec. sometimes it will make the poem seem more deep and wise etc, also why the capitals?
