Reality

When do we realize it’s too late to walk away?

When the heart aches

And the air in your lungs become limited

When your sleeps are cut short

And your dreams fretful

When you chew food that tastes like marble

And walk without seeing where you’re going

When do we realize there is no chance of walking away?

When the alarm rings and the sun sets

When you walk but never reach your destination

When the tears that roll down your face

And the light inside you burns out

When the faces of the people you see are no longer familiar

And the bed you sleep in is too lonesome

When do we realize every action we take is pointless?

When we pick up the phone but can’t dial a number

When we meet and there are no words to be said

When we wake up and realize darkness still surrounds us

When the pain inside you can no longer be held in

And the air you breathe in slices through you

Like the wind of a winter morning

When do we realize it’s time to let go?

And keep walking

Even if the destination is unknown

And the journey is filled with uncertainty

When the clock keeps ticking

And you are left frozen in that moment.
