My Escape

My Escape

A Poem by Ella

My Escape

I don't mean to leave so soon
but I feel as if I must go 
the fear has taken over 
and the moon is on my shoulder. 


These words don't come easily
but I really need to flee
this place I call home 
this place is no home  


To you I owe nothing
though I gave you everything 
the clock now strikes 
so I will hitchhike 
my way through this life

Leaving is sometimes very difficult as I can see from this piece I just read. I think it good to talk with someone about the feelings one may have about leaving. When you talk to another you gain insight and maybe the decision will be a better one , whichever that decision may be.

Sure thing! I really happy you liked it.
I really like this. It says a lot in only a few words. The only hitch is the two lines both ending in 'home'
Great work

It is one of those hard decisions of human life....Its hard to leave something you love so dearly, something you cared so much and suddenly you have to leave....I can feel the emotion of this poem and can relate to it from my personal experiences.....Great work....The words used here are quite superb my frnd.....

time is up and this place is no longer my refuge so it's time to thumb my way through what's left of my time on Earth... it's never easy to pick up and start over, but it is doable... even if it is only to leave in the mind, sometimes it's enough...nicely-done

We all have that need to escape sometimes. You seem to be a blessing to this world. I think your writing will continue to grow, even though it is already quite lovely.
