This is about my life. It shows why im hurting.

I was born on one side of the country
Living peacefully for a few years with my loving family
Then we moved away
And stayed there for a few years
Then we moved away
And stayed there for a year
Then we moved away
And so our journey spread on
Never getting close
Never making friends
We would move away
Before we could grow our roots
I have learned a different life
I am not who I want to be
Why can’t I be here forever?
I want to be with you for the rest of my life
But I will be leaving soon
You will be but a memory
Fading away over the years
Then you’ll be gone
Don’t miss me
That’s what I ask
I don’t want you to bear the same pain
That I have had since the beginning
I have grown wings
Not roots
