Cause You Walked Away - Poem by maya crisol

There was a time
you belonged to something
though somedays...
you felt you didn't
like you were there by mistake
like you deserved to be in some place better
convinced you could be someone else...
blinded by these delusions...
you walked away senselessly...
you were too quick to turn away...
treading the path to nowhere...
Today you found yourself homeless...
away from where you once belonged
had you not been so ungrateful...
had you not betrayed your own convictions
you didn't have to be so lost and alone...
you could've stayed to where you belonged
if only you had been a little more realistic...
