Leaving Someday - Poem by Storm Pedersen

Leaving someday:

Someday soon
I shall leave
I shall leave this place
And go on to another 

I will leave and search this world
For a place I can be who I choose
A place where my dreams shall not be thrown away
A place where I shall choose my own path in life
A place where I can be accepted
A place where what I do is just enough

I don't care how long it takes
And I sure don't care where I have to travel
Just to find this place 

I shall leave soon 
Might not be coming back
But I know I won't mind
I hope no one misses me
And I hope no one crys over my absence
For I shall be at a better place
A place where I shall be happy 

I'm tired of being told no
Tired of being told I can't do what makes me happy
Tired of being told I'm not doing it right 
Tired of being told of my faults and mistakes

Soon I won't have to worry about anything 
Soon none of my problems and difficulties shall be around
For I will be gone 
Gone to a place
A place unlike this one
A place where none of that shall ever matter
No, no longer shall it
No, no longer shall any of it continue to trouble me
No, no longer shall I care what anybody thinks
Yes, yes I shall only think and do what makes me happy
No, no longer shall I try to please others
