By Emily R, Glendale, CA

The walls are crumbling beside me,
The ground is shaking beneath me,

My world is falling apart,
I feel as though I should depart,

And run away to a new life,
Leaving behind my struggles and strife,

I need to forget about the past,
and escape the shadow which it cast,

Even though I'm all alone,
I can make it on my own,

If I leave here tonight,
Maybe everything will be alright
