Good-Bye - Poem by Makayla Straight

Time to go
I have packed everything
Threw everything in the back seat of my car
Put myself in the drivers seat
Torn off the review mirror
So there is no looking back at where I just came from
Slamming my foot on the accelerator
I speed off
Leaving behind all the memories
The Good ones anyway
I think I will keep all the bad ones
To remind myself why I left
Why I stand with freedom over me
Everything before was just so complicated
But that was before I manned up and left
Not even a tear running down my eye
Only a smile upon my face
Now everything is breezy easy
Ever since I had stepped on that accelerator
So now all I have to say is good-bye

    unfortunately things have to be the way they are, I also did the same thing. Rough unfortunate time like you are going through, I packed my things fought for full custody of my 2 kids and moved from ny to texas away from everything in my old life. I still thought of things in the beginning but it will get better, you need to do what you think is right for yourself and what will make you happy (Report)Reply
