I walk alone!

A new beginning I seek to make,
But everything seems hauntingly familiar.
The baggage of the past is already too much to take,
And now the present seems all too similar.

I look back at the happy times we had,
When you were the reason for my smile.
And now I am broken and sad!
Why did the happy times have to last just for a while?

Were those decisions made just on an impulse?
Were those promises just empty words?
Those sugar coated words of yours I now repulse,
They now seem meaningless to me like the chatter of birds.

The memories of the past still linger in my mind,

But it is time now for me to take a stand!
My dreams and destiny I now wish to find,
I now live for myself and I walk alone as I don’t need to hold someone else’s hand!
