This Is My Path (A Mara Prose Poem)


I never thought I’d see the day
Where our love would ebb and go away

I always thought we would be one
I never thought we’d be undone

I always imagined a storybook ending
I never knew we would be past mending

Was it worth it? Who knows,
It’s still being written

There are times I’m lonely but then there
are times remotely, I feel a sense of peace,
wonder and refined emotion

Because now I have a new lease on life
Now I have a world without strife

I’ve said my goodbyes much to everyone’s surprise
I’ve cried my tears and dried my eyes

I’m mending my heart and learning to live apart
Will I love again? Maybe, I could start

My priorities lie in loving myself
I don’t have to change anymore
I can just be thyself

I let it all go because it was what was best for me
I needed a change, I needed to be free

I’ve spread my wings and hope I don’t fall
I’m following a new path, I’m following my call

It’s hard, it’s taxing and some days seem so blue
But then God sends a sign for me to remain true

I am grateful for the strength to press on
I am grateful for the people I can fall back upon

The story is being written right before our eyes
All the new developments are a wonderful prize

So I accept my new journey and I am in no hurry
I want to enjoy the experiences, I don’t want my memories to be blurry

Because this is my path and I have to make it last
This is my path and let’s just leave it at that
