Independent


Being independent means
being able to say
“No more,”
to friends who are toxic,
to family who act numb,
helpless, brainless,
leeches sapping all your
energy and good will,
giving nothing in return

But being independent means
not owing
anything
to
anyone
any more

Being independent means
refusing to visit on holidays,
refusing to acknowledge
until they learn their lesson

Being independent means
living freely
without obligation
to the past
and those who
still live there

It means being able to
decide who belongs in
your life and who doesn’t

It’s not easy saying no,
so why bother
saying anything at all?

What for?
