When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows there that shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you, except the long deep bitter want. And this is what everyone feels from birth to death.


walking away
is all in the
perspective

one might say
it is failure
cowardly

another will say
it is opportunity
redeeming

rather it contains
elements of
both

walking away
is saying "i'm
done"

it is an apology
cleaning up the
mess

after it can be said
"i am free to try new
things"

walking away
is humbling and
empowering

it is accepting
defeat and it is starting
over

it is simply about
where you are
looking

is it where you came
from--or where you are
going?
