Today Is June 16, 2012

I passed up a blunt today
no thanks to your
quiet concern
I gave up a drink today
no help from you
I put down my razor today
not like you talked
me through it
I held down a meal today
no way you were there
to keep it in
I held hands with the truth today
no honesty from you
I walked away from you today
you put up a fight
I held my own ground today
you wanted to stomp me back
I took a swing today
but your knuckles were
the ones to bleed
I didn't take your lip today
even though you stuck it out
I don't have any bruises today
I also walked out the door today
I didn't wait for an apology today
I didn't turn back today
I clenched onto my pride today
I set my eyes on the horizon today
I fed my happiness today
Tomorrow you won't be in my future.

between real events, and events from friends, I put together a piece for anyone to know that, it is possible, and it is okay and you are not alone.
