POEM 271: TOXICITY
“walk your walk and don’t look back”
Temi’s voice echoed once again
I am tempted to turn around,
just one more glance
but the stern expression of her voice
was punctuated with a jot.
and the strong tone of her face
was wrapped in harsh sound waves.
“walk your walk!
y o u r walk!!
your w a l k!!!”
…and I did take a walk away from toxicity.
