Just Let Me - Poem by Justin Gilliland

They say they give me freedom.....
but why do i feel so trapped?
All I want to do is to be alone,
to be free from all the stress.
and free from everything, to just sit down,
to relax and not worry.
i don't want to have to worry about what to do next.

Just Let Me Live

All I ask is to try life for myself,
to make my own mistakes and learn from them.
To make my own problems and to work them out myself,
to go out there and just be,
without caring where im going.

Just Let Me Be

I want to figure things out on my own.
I want to learn how to deal with things.
I wish for time to do things I want to do,
I want to take risks, to be in the moment.

Just Let Me Do

Just let me do things my way,
to not have to measure up,
to some meaninless scale.
I want to just take a moment and just STOP.
To take time out and watch the world go

Just Let me Be Who I Want to Be.
