I can see what’s so great about leaving
Forgetting about what you’re constantly feeling
Getting to breathe without fearing the hearing
Of reprimands and commands never ceasing.
But my pride won’t allow for fleeing
I want to stand steady and fight.
Not give into the urge for flight,
Grin and bear it; it’ll turn out alright.
You ran away. And now I’m stranded.
It’s hard not to feel abandoned.
I know life hasn’t been easy for you,
But you were who I looked up to.
And now you’re just so. far. away.
But I can see what’s so great about leaving.
