No Turning Back @donna_mccance

Topic - Overcoming toxic relationships


You tried to break me

With all your might.

But I wasn't going

to give up the fight.


You tried to steal

My soul, my heart.

Leave me in pieces,

Torn apart.


I started to question

Your hurtful ways,

Of striking at me,

For so many days.


And then I realized

The problems not me.

The pains in you.

And now I see.


Your past, your hurt

That you transfer

Is reflective of you

To which now I defer.


I preserved my strength,

For this very day,

To save my soul,

And to this I pray...


To never turn back,

as I walk away.
