I made a decision.

It wasn't easy.

I have to do this

on my own.

I can't place myself

in the caring hands

of others

again.

I must,

yes, must,

learn to trust

myself.

It isn't you,

my silly friend,

my love,

my life,

it isn't you

my precious child.

It's me.

I won't ruin you

one more time.

I need to learn to talk

and learn to walk

and handle my issues

by myself.

I can't live upon others

for the rest of my life.

I love you

and I won't ruin you

again.
