How long I walked I feared not

Because I still had the day

A poet's heart had I

As I dropped my anchors,

Releasing me from my monotonous life

I left my house at half past two

Feeling rather blue

It was a Thursday in May, that life defining day

I up and left, never did I test

My plans of the future before

How stupid, I though to myself,

That one test, though I tried my best,

Would define my future

So I left

Just up and left on that fateful day in May

I said adieu to none

Just followed the sun

I lived the teen dream

For I just ran away

Though some many say

My future is no longer gay

But all the while I do smile

For I know that I seized the day

The bright city beckoned

And I followed

A moth to a light

I am freed.
