I need


To move out of this house. This is my time and I deserve to finally be out on my own. I’ve only done things for other people and I’ve completely neglected myself and what I need.. I’ve had enough..maybe if I got a “thank you” or “I appreciate the things you do”…but no. I’m too young to be this stressed out about things that shouldn’t even be my responsibility. Fuck this.


All the people
I thought were made for me,
are not.

All the ones
I thought I’d always keep in touch with,
we fell out.

All the things
that used to hurt,
hurt less.

All the moments
I kept replaying in my head,
have faded.

All the times
I thought I would always be weak,
I toughened up.

All my friends
I fell in love with and admired,
I’ve distanced myself from.

All the things
I hated about myself,
I am learning to love.

And all the ones
I thought I couldn’t live without,
are gone;
yet I am still breathing.
