It's time to go,
Everyone has said their goodbyes.
It was my choice to leave,
Why didn’t you stop me?

You hugged me as I cried,
I laughed as you made a joke.
I realized I loved you all,
Why didn’t you stop me?

I knew why I left.
I knew it was right.
I knew it was what I needed,
What I didn’t know was that it was going to hurt.

My past is today,
And yet today is my future.
My choice paved my destiny,
But not with a smooth cement as I had planned.

Maybe I knew it was going to hurt-
Maybe I wanted to take that risk.
Maybe I reached too far.
Or maybe: I simply used rocky cement.

The End
