WIP Wednesday

Today I stood along the path you had set for me

I stared at the worn footprints leading the way

I took a step and then one more before I turned to see

Where I had come from

How far I had gone

And what more was left ahead of me.

The stretch of endless oblivion mocked me with its length

I curled my fingers into fists and decided then and there

To leave that path that you had set for me

To forge ahead

And make another without you there

Meant only for me

Where the journey was mine and not yours

Where I could finally be free.
