I Retreated

I retreated
Going backwards and cleaning up
what I wanted
to leave behind
All that baggage
for someone else’s door
Those true brave souls
As if God said, “Okay.”
To throw it all away
would have made for a better day
A way to start anew
Amidst the chosen few
So, I still have pity
to wallow through
To see it again now
To see it again then
It reminds me
that I can’t run
I retreated
