Moving On

It’s two steps forward and one step back,
But no matter how slow, I’m still on track.
It’s taken a while, but I’m starting to see
Exactly why we weren’t meant to be.

I gave us everything I had to give,
And now I understand that I need to live
My own life, because you didn’t care
Enough to keep trying to see what was there.

Yes, I still look back on what we had,
But now I can remember the things that were bad.
Life how hard I tried to make it work,
Even though you chose to keep acting berserk.

I will keep moving on,
Because I know that I am strong,
And I need nobody to make me whole,
So my feelings you can no longer control.

I can remember the good things,
But recall the bird with broken wings
That had to learn to fly again,
And refuses to look back and covet what had been.

Maybe you will come back someday,
Now that I am set on a different way.
But would I take you back after it all?
I can’t know now, but I surely would no longer crawl.

The author's comments:
It took me a long time to get over my first boyfriend. This poem represents that healing when you finally are able to accept that life goes on and that it happened for a reason.
