Closer to Real

I decided to walk away, To let him be with that better match; the one I was told he was destined for. It was a choice that I live with each day.

Some years later I walked away-again. Baby in tow and a 10 hour drive ahead of me. Starting over and barely making it through the days. It was a choice and the only one I could make.

After some time; we settled in. We were ok-my baby gap boy and me. Movies on the weekend and Legos sticking to our toes.

He came along, with promises of a good life and security. New homes, puppies and Disney vacations. We walked away from the fake and never returned.

We are both ok again. Independent, kind and loyal. Staying far away from the ones who are insincere and closer to the real.
