It's Okay To Walk Away

It’s okay to walk away

when the bandaid disappears 

and you see what was there.


You see it for what it is.


It’s okay to walk away

when your original beliefs are challenged

even if you are the only one to challenge them;

even if you’re the only one to resist.


It’s okay to walk away

when your body and mind are drained;

when you start to see frequencies clash,

and lights dim.


It’s okay to walk away

 to wish them well

without looking back.
