It is not the end of the world, only the end
of your comfort zone, outside of which
is even more of the world,
waiting for you to begin again, so don't hold your breath,
step through as you exhale,
& find yourself somewhere new, like you always do
when you realize something isn't right for you,
prompting you to travel in a different direction.
Every goodbye you give to your old self,
is another hello to who you truly are,
so don't worry so much about what others are doing;
your pace is the only one that matters.
You don't have to run,
for or from,
anyone ... ever... again.
