Sometimes you just have to walk away.

Every picture I’ve taken, every move

I’ve made and every moment I made.

I look back on each one, ask myself a very

simple question, was it ever really me?
Could I just throw it all away? Could I 

just walk away so easily? I used to take

it all in stride until I made myself believe 

this Journey was for me. 

 

I’ve never been more broken until I 

just walked away. I’ve never been more

insecure until I fought myself to stay.

Forced myself to stay in a place where

I was never happy to be alive, to be 

me, but just okay to be in one place.

 

Every smile I’ve given, every heart I’ve

broken. I look on it all, and I just think to 

myself that was me, but as I look back I

see a part of me was just looking to belong.

I won’t forget all the progress I made, I 

would never trade it away, but something 

is telling me I just gotta walk away. 

 

I swallowed my pride and addressed my fear

which told me to just run and hide 

and not even try.

 

I’ve never been more complete until I just

walked away. I’ve never been more sure

in my eyes, never have I tried so hard to

find something, a path that’s just mine, one

forged by me. One where I’ve happy to 

be alive and not just strive just to be in 

one place. 

 

I’ve never been more broken, I’ve never

been more complete until I just swallowed

my pride and my fears, until I just walked

away. I don’t see myself looking back, I 

see myself in a place where I’m proud to 

be alive and not just fighting myself just

to stay in one place. 

 

Just walked away...
