even running shoes get tired out, run out of purpose, stop being good for us. so we thank them for sticking by us and move on with new soles.

if you’re constantly scared of them leaving you behind

constantly out of breath trying to catch up

always trying to prove your worth to stay by their side

stop.

if they stop to wait for you, to take your hand, then by all means, let yourself choose how to move from there. did they ever look back to see if you were still there? ever slow down so your footsteps beat in rhythm? bandaged your scraped knees, nudged you along? did you both look at each other properly? have you held yourself as precious as you should? did they?

and if they keep going,

please,

for yourself,

let them go.

new souls.
