I Want to Run Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,706 People

    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

    I want to move out and leave my life behind.

    I don't hate it, I just know I'd have more fun and probably a better life if I got up and left today (besides my assault charges, lol) I know what you're thinking, a typical 19 y.o. kid who hates their parents and blah, blah. I love my parents, mostly my dad, but when reality...

    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.

    If I run away, I can finally let go of my dark

    intentions and start over again. I can go somewhere where nobody will find me and feel more relaxed and free with myself than I have ever felt.
