The Ones Who Walk Away

The ones who walk away
Are the ones who don’t care,
They can’t be bothered to.

 

The ones who walk away
Understand pain and suffering,
They can’t see it happen again.

 

The ones who walk away

Are filled with regret and hate,

For they have been thrown away.

 

The ones who walk away,

With tears down their face,

Leaving everything they love behind.

 

The ones who walk away

Found a purpose to move on,

They can’t let it slip away.

 

The ones who walk away

Are strong with their head held high,

As they don’t need to beg for love.

 

The ones who walk away

Have given up trying,

No longer able to tolerate it anymore.

 

The ones who walk away

Realized what others didn’t,

And set themselves free.

 

The ones who walk away

Fast and quick,

Never planned on staying.

 

I am one who walks away,

You are one who walks away,

We are the ones who walk away.

 

They are the ones that stay behind,

Watching us as we leave,

For they forgot that to make us stay

They need to chase after us.
