New Life IIII/MMX
the days running down so fast,
our paths diving after all this time.
In this empty room I sit,
everything I own compressed.
Time to move on, get the new start,
yet scared, unsure, and confused.
the time seems to have disappeared,
how this ever happened, beyond me.
Tomorrow coming around the corner,
the chance, and escape is here.
Now I am stepping forward,
but scared to leave yesterday.
Life was so much nicer,
no more good times here.
Everyone is gone, on their own,
now it is my time to step forward.
I wanted this, I got this,
just like everything else.
I worked for this, I'm ready for this.
Tomorrow I begin my life,
today is already gone.

I think we all may reach a point where this poem holds true. I remeber when I first moved out on my own, I felt every word of this. The fear and the confusion yet the knowing I had to do it. You speak for more people than you know in this write.
