Closing the Book



I’ve waded knee deep

In a river of tears

Time to let go

Done with those years


Also relinquishing

The here and the now

As each day passes

I’m figuring out how


I know I don’t require

All I once thought

So I’m giving up the fight

For things I once sought


Fully guarding my heart

From what isn’t there

Finally closing the book

Since I’d rather not care

  1. I think we all go through this in our lives. The truth is, we will always care, no matter how many times we try to tell ourselves we don’t. And that’s ok, too. Hang in there, my friend. ❤
