too bad

we all knew

time goes by way too quickly

walking alongside those broken dreams

with leaves dropping like tears down your side

those who left you behind run ahead

breaking branches and leaving you to stumble

even in the darkest of times

gaining strength with every stride

finding light and never letting it go

you’re better than them

because you’ve learned to live without them

to forget them

this time you’ve left them behind

now they sulk in your shadows
