Away

Away

 

There may be times that call for restraint, silence or removing ourselves from a situation. It is in those moments that our real strength is tested.

AWAY by chris kuhn

 

One step forward.

A step away

From what you have

To what you need.

Daily contemplation.

 

One step back.

A step away

But will they hear

Elected silence?

Conscious decision.

 

One step alone.

A step away

To miss them

And be missed.

Forgiven words.

 

One step onward.

A step away

From uncertainty

And ambiguity.

Tempered devotion.

Cooled emotion.

 

Quiet and away.
