"Understanding is the key to acceptance and only with acceptance can there be recovery" --Albus Dumbledore

I wanted to run away
I wanted to give up
I wanted to disappear
I finally just had enough

I wanted to escape
To stop hurting the ones who care
I wanted to fade away
I didn't want to be there

I wanted to stop causing
So many people so much pain
I didn't think it would make a difference it I left
If anything, they would gain

I thought I ruined it all
I thought everyone hated me
I had screwed up so many times
And now no one was happy

But I didn't run away
And I did not fade
I knew I had to keep going
I knew progress could be made

I did not escape
I did not disappear
I realized where I needed to be
And that is right here

I will not give up
I will not back away
I know where I'm going
And I am here to stay
