The Day I Ran Away, by: Ashton Smith
It was a somber day,
The day I ran away.
When people back home think about me,
I imagine them thinking things that
"She was lonely," they say.
"An angsty teenage girl
who felt the need to defy the town."
But that's not true.
I want to get out into the world,
See things no one's ever seen before.
I want to impact the lives of my peers,
and show them the world is much bigger
than the one they think of as their own.
I want to bring people together,
and let them know that their problems
There are people who have suffered,
and moved on,
stronger than ever.
I want to experience as much as I can,
Because, one day,
I'm going to die.
My life will end,
and, unlike others,
I don't want that weighing feeling.
"I wish"es, "I would've"s, and "I didn't"s
I never want to experience.
And for that reason,
I'm going to determine my own life.
"I plan"s, "I will"s, and "I am"s,
are the only things
that will weigh me down
on that inevitable day.
And for that reason,
to run away.
