"Never say goodbye because saying goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting."


I can't just stand here and watch everything happen
I can't just stay motionless when I'm surrounded
I can't fly free in the night when I want to most
I can't escape this harsh, cruel world in which I'm trapped
I can't leave my past behind me
I can't be here forever and feel useful
I can't go forward even though it's they way home
I can't love, hate, or feel strong emotion
I can't do a lot of things
What can I do?

I like the mood of sadness and despair in this poem! You really did a great job! Please make sure to read some of my poems like 'Abused' and 'The Watcher', I think that they have a simiar tone to this.
