Toni Collette has shared a poem about moving on from the past towards a better future, following her split from husband Dave Galafassi after 20 years of marriage.
The poem, titled Halfway There, is from Kate Baer’s poetry book And Yet, and its subject matter seems to be close to Toni’s heart in light of her recent separation.
‘Whatever happens, you are free to go. Free to peel off what’s left of this story and choose another. It is not too late. It is definitely worth the trouble,’ it reads.

‘Remember the story of the lion lost without his courage. Too scared, full of fury, the great wizard standing in the emerald tower, knowing the lion was already brave.’
It’s not the first time Toni, 50, has hinted at heartbreak since her split from Dave – which was made public when he was pictured kissing another woman last week.
A few days after their break-up hit the headlines, the Hereditary star posted a haunting image of a dark tree alongside another cryptic poem.

And on Monday she shared a picture of a building with the words ‘love is the answer’ painted on the side.
Her online activity prompted fans to express concern over Toni’s mental well-being ahead of her impending divorce, with many sending their love and support.
Dave, who was a drummer in an indie rock band when he met the Muriel’s Wedding star, was pictured last week taking an early morning dip at Manly with chiropractor Shannon Egan.
Titled Halfway There, the poem was posted to Collette’s Instagram Stories and encourages readers to ‘peel off’ their past and move on to a better future, a message which seemed to resonate with the award-winning actor. Pictured: Collette and Galafassi in 2009
Daily Mail Australia contacted Toni’s management about the photographs on Wednesday afternoon, and hours later she announced the couple had split in a joint statement released on her newly-reactivated Instagram account.
‘It is with grace and gratitude that we announce we are divorcing,’ the pair wrote.
‘We’re united in our decision and part with continuing respect and care for each other.
‘Our kids are of paramount importance to us and we will continue to thrive as a family, albeit a different shape. We’re thankful for the space and love you grant us as we evolve and move through this transition peacefully. Big thanks.’
It’s not the only heart-breaking message Collette has shared since Galafassi was snapped passionately kissing a woman in the surf off a Sydney beach last Wednesday
