Time To Move On


Life in this town has gotten so redundant.
It’s just the same old shit day after day.
I need a better life but I have no money to fund it.
I have no reason left to stay.
I’ve been in this place for twenty-two years
and I have nothing to show.
It’s the birth place of all my fears.
I have to leave in order to grow.
The time has come for me to move on.
Start a new life in a new place.
My will to stay here is gone.
It’s time for a change in pace.
I really think this is what I need to do.
It’s the only way for me to improve my life.
With all this mental anguish; I am threw.
I just can’t handle the pain and strife.
So to my family and true friends; goodbye.
I’ll miss the times that we’ve had.
I’ll be fine so don’t worry or cry.
Life without me won’t be that bad.
