Run Away - Poem by Matt Burgett

I've said before that I feel
That I am not welcome here
And I know those feelings are real
So it's not something I fear

But still it hurts to feel that way
When no one talks to you
Unless of course you talk to them
Sometimes even then too

So how exactly should I feel
When I'm ignored by most
If I left or just died out
In my name would you say a toast

If you say no I understand
I wouldn't for me either
But on the ground I would not land
More like in a morgue's freezer

And thoughts about leaving now
I just want to go today
Where exactly I don't know
I just want to run away

Say goodbye to none or maybe some
If they would even hear
Gone out of state nowhere close
Definitely nowhere near

In this place I've been cast out
But every-one's afraid to say
To my face they want to shout
That they wish I would run away
