Roaming free in the wild,
I wish to be,
Though I am only a child,
Please, please let me run free!
Free to live, free to roam,
Can’t you see,
Running from life, running from home,
Imagine, me running free!
Hiding my feelings and my thoughts,
Sadly, this is me,
Hiding them I know I should not,
Help me to run free!
Through times, troubled and bad,
I did not want to be,
I wish not to think about times that were sad,
I want to be running free!
Through deaths that were hard,
Again and again I see,
My heart and emotions I guard,
I am ready to run free!
My friends and family, to me, are dear,
Yet, they don’t know the real me,
They are close to me, but for them I fear,
Let me go, let me run free!
Joy and happiness seems to escape,
This should not be,
But, it all comes, for everyone, in a different shape,
I am running free!
There in this painfully crushed heart is still love,
Family, friends, and you’ll see
I give thanks and look above,
I am finally free!
