About-Running Away A Poem

Running Away


To all my family and all my friends

I'm sorry this all had to come to an end

I was getting to know all of you,all over again

and things started looking brighter

than they were back then

But, now the time is here

and i must go

I just wanted to say

i love you all so

So many times when i was down

you lifted my heart and my head from the ground

So many times again when i have cried

you all tried to make me feel better inside

it's not that i didn't appreciate this all

but the time has come now, and i must fall.

I just can't live my life any longer like this

you, my family and friends

are who I'll most miss

Please don't feel sad that I've gone

it was just my way of getting away

away from the pain I've been holding inside

away from the confusion that's been on my mind

Don't think of me as dead and gone

My love for all life still forever lives on.

I love this :) I can relate to it so much. It's like reading my thoughts.
