I don't feel lost
I feel tied up
The life that I'm in
Is so corrupt

I don't just want out
I need out
I know that I
Can't live without

All these things
I really need
I can't get
Can I be freed?

I'm going off
To make a life
Hopefully I
Can end my strife

I know that there
Will still be trials
But they will come
In different styles

I can handle them
All by myself
But these right now
Are something else

I need out
I need to breathe
I need to break free
I need to leave

Once I get out
I won't come back
I don't care how
Mom will react

I'm sorry Mom
But the way we've lived
Has put me in a hole
That I didn't dig

Once I get out
I can't come back
This is how
I have to act

I will make
It out alive
Believe me now
I will survive!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
