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.
