I can feel it, negativity! -Sailor Moon
What do you do all day?
Do you sit and think of what you’ve lost?
Do you throw in the towel when the fight’s just begun?Sometimes I just don’t Know what to do… I want to give in, Stop in the souls of my shoe. Too exhausted to carry on, I’m tired and worn out. “Get up you lazy bum!” You don’t need to shout. Why must you do this? Try so hard to drag me down, Almost as if you’ve decided To run me out of town. Well you know what? I’m not going to comply. I’m done with listening to this And I’m not going to let it get by. I have a life, Moments of my own, And I’m not going to let you stop me And take what I have grown. If you want to be down And let your life turn to ash, Then do so if you will Though I think such actions are rash. Because there’s so much more out there, Waiting for you to stand up; To take what has been given And never give it up. It may take you some time To come to terms with this, Until you do so, You I will surely miss. Just know that I will always be here, Waiting for you to come home. Sitting outside each evening, And missing you while you roam. Because this is a decision That only you can make. And from you I will never Try your life to take. So learn and grow And always my friend, I hope you know That in my heart you’ll have a place.

And because I’ve had to watch people I love walk away from me because they needed to grow and it was something that I could not help with. And because sometimes I have been the one to walk away, because there were things I needed to know for myself that I could not learn through another.
Thank you, Olianna, for this incredible prompt today.
