This is something I wrote back in November of 2009 and in some way I still feel this way.

Take me away, away from this place,

Take me away, away from these days.

Filled with obscurity and no place for me,

Nowhere to hide and nowhere to be.

 

Take me away and don’t let me come back,

My atmosphere is strong, please don’t let it crack.

Condemned in a home I can’t call my own,

Surrounded by people and yet I’m alone.

 

Stop! Please, I am doing so well,

With myself, my emotions, can’t anyone tell?

I got what I need; my reflection is clear,

I know who I am; I’m not living in fear.

 

My emotions are stable and my heart’s not impaired,

It no longer suffers; I made it not care!

But take me away this house is not mine,

Give me a place where the new me can shine.

 

Not here, these walls are making me cry,

Destroying the essence I once saw go by.

Take me with you wherever you desire,

If I ever complain then call me a liar.

 

I don’t want any tears in my eyes anymore,

And if “away” is away; then take me, my lord.
