Melanie Walendowsky Baker


I'm so determined
I have no idea how,
but I need to leave this place -
it has to be now.

Impatience grows
with every single tear.
But I'm so very determined
to conquer my fear.

I don't want to stay
where pain is rampant.
Determination comes in though
when nothing else can't.

It just needs to leave me
this agonising rage.
I'm determined, however,
to start a new page;

with no one to need
and just me alone.
I'm determined, I am,
to be alone on my own.
