Escaping Myself

I look around and don’t know what to say
I walk around and take it all in
Bringing myself back to reality
Because I’ve been gone so long
I’ve missed so much

Because I’ve been trying to escape myself
Been trying to ride out all the bad things
And only realize the good
Just taking in the scenery around me
Taking in all I’ve missed
I’m done escaping it all

So much has happened
You’ve done this
She’s been there
I’ve missed it all trying to avoid my life
Missed it all trying to escape myself

And I’ve only just realized you’re here
You always have been
Please don’t let me drift again
Please don’t let me try to escape again

Because I’ve been trying to escape myself
Been trying to ride out all the bad things
And only realize the good
Just taking in the scenery around me
Taking in all I’ve missed
I’m done escaping it all
Oh I’m done escaping it all

I’m not happy with what you’ve done
Letting me live this life without knowing what’s going on
You’ve kept me in the shadows
Kept me away from everyone
Let me escape myself
Escape him
Escape her
Escape you

And I’ve wanted to do this for so long
Wanted to let everything go
Pretend nothing was wrong
I’ve escaped myself
I’ve escaped him
Escaped her
Escaped you
And I was wrong

I love this poem!!! I can totally relate to this feeling. So glad that Meagash is taking back her right to her own vibrant life. She's a pretty amazing soul.
