Poem: I'm Moving On

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

I'm moving on is a poem about how you find yourself too tired to help someone anymore, especially when he just hurts you in the end. You stand motionless watching him make the same mistakes over & over again. There is nothing you can do to help them until they want to help themselves. It is time to let go.

"Rascal Flatts - I'm Moving On "

I'm Moving On

My heart aches in pain
from watching you self destruct,
killing me deep down inside,
but there's no need to worry about me,
I’ll be fine.

Standing strong, with tears streaming down my cheeks,
no longer allowing you to hurt me,
I’m moving on with my dreams
leaving you behind,
I cannot fix you this time.

Pieces of my heart are scattered
beyond repair,
never to heal,
but no need to worry about me,
I’ll be fine,
I’m moving on.

Sometimes you have to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.

People have to want to help themselves ...to be willing to change.

Peggy,

You are right!

It's a hard choice to just let them go on alone...but sometimes tough love is the only way.

Thanks & have a great evening.

There is only so much that we can do for others if they do not want help. Sometimes it is best to move on.

Misbah,

Thank you.

You grasp this one exactly.

Sometimes you have no choice.

Take care and have a nice day.

Very heart touching and true...

That happens when you are so tired of same situation over and over again that you are unable to help that particular person and feel like nothing can change now, my presence or absence doesn't matters to him. So okay i should move on. Let him live the way he wants to live
