- "If you can walk away today, would you?"
Somehow that question stuck in her mind
as she was packing things in her suitcase
Can it really be this easy?
I hope not she thought -
How can one just pack up and go?
How do you forget the things that you cherished for half your life
things that made the most sense
even those you identified as your own?
How did you become the stranger in the family portrait?
lifeless hair, a face that reflect weariness
With an absent smile
I never realized I've lost myself
I got stuck
while everyone around me continued to grow
stagnant I became -
because I worried about everybody else
and forgot to love me
maybe it's time I rediscover me -
'cause how can one give love when you don't love yourself?
So this is not goodbye,
no I'm not leaving you...
Just taking some time out to rediscover me ---
*Inspired by so many situations out there*
