Burning Bridges

you find ways to rationalize
when youíre trying to survive
an abusive situation
you self-sooth and say
everythingís going to be okay
but itís not yet
you still have to learn
to enforce healthy boundaries
and when to walk away
whether it was leaving
my ex husband
or my workplace
disowning family
itís just the same
abuse wears many hats
disguised in lies
but wise eyes recognize
the time to cut all ties
for the sake of personal growth
