Linda Kay’s Senior Adventures’
Wednesday Wit and Wisdom
For this hop, we find a picture and write a story or poem to go with it.
Here is my story


walking_awayShe had been alone and lonely for a long time. Then love came rushing in and swept her off her feet.  She was fooled by good looks and promises of forever. For years, she tried to make it work. Now she knows looks can be deceiving, promises broken, and forever ends. She has learned you can be lonely when you are with someone and that is worse than being alone and lonely.

There will be no resolution just acceptance that it is over. Sometimes you just have to walk away. So, that’s what she is doing today, walking away with no looking back.  Standing strong and tall, head held high, she takes her bag and starts walking.  Alone.

  1. Touching story.
    Yes, we have to take charge. If we call & no one comes with us, we have to walk alone! A very famous Nobel laureate in literature from India has echoed the same thoughts in his poem 🙂

    1. I think one of the hardest things to do is accept that love is rarely a fairy tale and there aren’t always happily ever after endings. Sometimes ya just gotta walk away.
