I Want To Get Away - Poem by Michelle Dickson

I want to get away sometimes
I want to be myself
But then I look back and realize
I can no longer be myself

Too many are the lies
Too many are the distances
Too many things I have hidden
Within a heart so deep; that all is forgotten.

They say you can never lose yourself
But I beg to differ.
For I have lost myself
In this world’s massive river.

I want to get away sometimes
I want to be myself
But then I look back and realize
I was never myself

I was always what others wanted me to be
But I was never just me
I was always waiting for a time
When I could spread my wings and fly.

Now that time has come
And I’m afraid to leave the nest
Always hoping and praying
That I will do my best.

I want to get away sometimes
I want to be myself
I want to spread my wings and fly
And now I realize I can.
