Leaving abuse behind

The Moment

by despiser

The clock is tick tocking
She runs but keeps stopping
Opportunity's knocking
But her thoughts just keep blocking
Voices of walking
Just won't stop talking

She's been snowed before
Burnt down to the core
Her heart is unsure
She needs to get more

Back on track
A burr on her back
Knapsack is packed
Wake up to the fact
Last is the past

Rewound and rewinding
Running and hiding
Spending time biding
Rationalize fighting
Paid the price trying
Tying knots binding
Blinding thoughts minding

Have the will to make right
Starting tonight
Bite the bit tight
Insight to the plight
Focus in sight
Wrongs to make right

Get on with the show
No chance to blow
Steady and slow NO
Burn up the road GO
Step out the front door
And look back no more


A woman leaves an abusive past behind
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
