Why Hold On?

Poem by Cez S.G.

You make promises to escape from your weaknesses
Promises that most of the time make you feel helpless
What makes you feeble, what makes you so vulnerable?
Why make a vow at all, knowing it will just lead to trouble?

Your resolve of letting go was incredible
Nobody even believed it was possible
Countless times you had attempted the same endeavor
Only to end up with the same score.

Everybody thought things are getting better with you
You were moving on well with a smile that is true
Even professing that you were over the worst scenario
But a fortnight after, you were back with the same Lothario.

What is his hold on you?
Why can't you seem to let go?
Does it overwhelm you to break free?
Are you not aware that you are just there for his fancy?

You have been ignoring your heart's exhaustion
You claim to be happy with the same person
Is it really love that you feel?
Or just the physical need that is real.

Wake up with a sense of pride
It's not yet too late to take that stride
Take that last self-respect with grace
Walk away with dignity and embrace your hurt with humility.

Break free, my friend...
