Escape - Poem by Elizabeth Adams

Everything has been great since I made the decision to leave,
I can finally do as I wish, I can finally breath.
Living under your dictatorship took away the freedom I once possessed,
Now I've got that back along with dignity, pride, & nothing less.

I stopped talking to my friends just to make you happy,
I sacrificed the good times I could've had so you could be with me.
I used to believe everything you would say,
I'd drown in the compliments & that would make my day.
All of your lies have now escaped,
I'm glad I did too, before it was too late.

    Hi Elizabeth! I like your poem very much! I have a suggestion I hope you don't mind? Well...here goes: 'I can finally breathe... (spelling) ...also this line is wonderful: 'Now I've got that back along with dignity, pride, & nothing less! ' WELL...I think you got a whole lot more! 'Now, I've got that freedom back...along with my dignity, pride and yes, happiness...no less.' Just a thought! LSP (Report) Reply
