So Cliche

So Cliche

a poem about moving on, letting go, and finding your way

"
I've been meaning to figure things out 
move on from this place, without a doubt
Be strong and let it all go
I can say it, but it's easier to put on a show
Some days I can keep it straight
with my head up, facing toward a new page
but something always brings me back
its not nostalgia
maybe it's strength that i lack
It seems It's always just a little too late
to rewind and choose a different way
I found that It's true what they say
you never know what you got til its gone
and everyone claims its just a cliche
but for me its the reason I can't move on
Maybe I hide these feelings well
wearing a mask to get through this hell
I look back on my life and wonder 
if I would have done things different 
would I still have gone under?
I don't think i'm blue anymore
I just don't know what the hell i'm doing this for
I hurt the one who would have given me all 
for one who got bored and let me fall 
and in running back trying to fix my mistakes
I realized the past had soon erased
so left alone I began write
with a broken heart and watery eyes 
it's strange how you can break your own heart
by losing yourself and playing the wrong part
To this day I still look back on what I lost
and know i deserve paying this cost 
So I sit here all alone 
Counting the days until I go home
The blank walls and computer screen
take me to a place where I can breathe
I know I can't hide in this place forever
but for now, it just feels so much better
I know things are soon going to change
and ill look back on this beaten cage
ill remember how it changed my world 
and that from the pits I found whats real
I found that It's true what they say
you never know what you got til its gone
and everyone claims its just a cliche
but for me its the reason I can't move on
