Here I Go . .

Poetry By: Shea Ryhai

Song of how my life feels trying to live up to the expectations of my family. It's more of a song then a poem, but honestly most of my poems are songs in my head.

Here I Go {Song}


Here I Go. . (Song)

by SheaRyhai © 2009


Seems I spent my whole life,

trying to make you proud.

If I had dreams of my own,

they were never said out loud.

I tried so hard to just be perfect,

somehow I knew your smile would be worth it.


Here I go, changing just to please you. . .

Watch me try, watch me fall, and turn away again.

I was born to fly, but that's not what you'd have me do,

. . . it's okay I'll live the life you want and just pretend. . .


Fading away just to become

another calculated score.

No matter how hard I try

they seem to expect more.

Am I awake, am I asleep?

Counting these promises you will never keep.


Here I go, dying just to please you. . .

hiding away, forgotten face, you only laugh at me.

Pushed onto this ledge and told what I can't do.

. . .I'm falling back and letting go, but somehow you can't see.


Watch me shatter, watch me break,

I'm done with being your mistake.

Thought it was worth it for your smile,

just now realized they were all fake!

Don't say my name, you never knew me,

I'll grow these wings and finally be free.


Here I go, learning just to dream for me. . .

I'm flying high, chasing stars and don't care what you say.

Sorry you resent that I still want to breath.

. . .You're grieving the shatter girl who finally ran away.
