The Forgotten Ones

are those who leave

footprints in your life.

 

Footprints of detestation and love

of euphoria and dejection

accomplishment and letdown.

 

The Lovers came with pledges

of immeasurable devotion  and adoration

but left…leaving wrecked hearts behind.

 

The Friends came with enjoyment,

dependability and closeness

but left…leaving behind rivals with secrets.

 

The Family came with familiarity,

protection and encouragement

but left…leaving behind broken people.

 

As they treaded through my life

leaving behind destruction and hate

I rise from the soil, look to the heavens

and realize…

 

The Forgotten Ones will never be forgotten

but they will never decide my future.
