Leaving

I'm leaving school (yup- big girl now) and... well. This says how I feel about it.

How will I cope?

Without that boundary

That wall that’s surrounded

The whole life of me

 

The comforting barrier

That’s always defined me

 

Who I am

What I feel

Who I see

What I know

 

You say I know everything

I’m supposed to know

I know it’s not so

Please tell me again

 

Let’s do it all over

Just start up afresh

Forget the past years

Let me shrink away

 

From that road past the garden

From the building called bank

 

Responsibility

Reliance

On a different person;

Me

The End
