I Am Never Far Away (5 of 5)
Age Group: Adult
Today I choose a beaten path.
A broken path.
Instead of a broken heart.
The doors are open,
Yet they slam in my face
And knock me down
Every time I try to walk in.
So today I choose to leave this place.
And yet I'm never far away.
For when I am welcome
To lend a helping hand once more
She need only call.
I can never truly leave.
Not now, not again.
For the beauty of the Dark Forest
Remains inside me.
I have also left a part of myself
With that same beauty
That was the light that shone from within.
I leave now to live the rest of my life.
But my ears are always open,
My hand will always extend,
My soul will always listen.
For when I am welcome to enter the Dark Forest once more,
It knows how to call me in.
From where ever I may be...
Author's Notes: We can only wait so long for things to happen the way we hope them to. Then we have to move on to try to find something better or something to settle for... preferably the former. Sometimes it takes a while for us to realize when we are no longer welcome. So instead, we leave the option open to be called back to that part of our past rather than try to remain within a fantasy land that no longer wants us.
