    I want to run away and go to a place

    where no one knows me. I want a place that isn't bogged down with negative memories. I want a place where I can have my own memories and make my own future, not here.

    If I could break away from all these painful,

    tangled, thorny vines... If I didn't feel so desperate to be good, correct, and everything you need... If I let go of all the memories that cloud my vision... I would run away to a warm welcoming freedom and fill my lungs with cool clean joy and exhale love... I would run away

    But I can't. I have children

    that I love and I have a responsibility to provide for them and take care of them. I also WANT to be there for them. It's their mother that I want out of my life. I want to start over in a way, but I love my children too much to leave them.

    I always get in my car

    and just drive. Most days I want to keep going. Some days I want to just drive into a pole. I can never get far enough away. I want to run from work, family friends and every responsibility I have. I don't want to deal with anyone or anything.

    I think about running away on a daily basis.

    Lately it's been constant and it's bothering me. I know I don't fit in, and I feel like I belong somewhere else. I know I don't belong here. I've completely isolated myself from my family & just last night I got into a fight with my mom. My mother & I have had a very distant...

    Lately I've been feeling really trapped

    and I just want to get out and be on my own. I'm only 14 so I know it would be a stupid idea to runaway. I think I'm just going to leave when I turn 18 and never look back
