Somewhere Away

Pine trees,
Yearning, reaching for the sky
Branches upward, like a baby beckoning for its mother.
Just lift me, carry me, pull me up with you.
Wanting so much more
Ignored, cast away
Why not loved and cherished?
Why do you throw me aside?
I'm not enough
Like on a farm, the runt never makes it.
But why are they not enough?
All I wanted was a home.
Uproot me, take me somewhere,
As always,
Where I don't have to be myself.
I want to grow, to prosper
To make a difference
Even if I'm not existent.
God, take me somewhere
Where the trees grow,
Where the air is bright and crisp.
Away from them,
forever.

I wasn't kissing her. I was whispering in her mouth.~ Chico Maroc

In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.~Dorothy Parker

thanks for commenting on my poem! Yours is really good, I like the metaphors you used, very relatable.

I can really relate to feeling like you just got to move...that sometimes you just want to run and see if things are better elsewhere. This is definatly a poem that people can relate to. cause everyone feels like this(:
