I Want to Leave Draft

Willow Shoemaker, 7th Grade Leland Middle School

I want to run; I want to hide.

Please just take me, bring me up, tuck me inside.

I watch but can’t speak; I know I’m here; I just can’t move; get me out.

I cry, but you can’t hear; I watch them laugh, but I’m trapped.

I can’t escape; I’m stuck in a brain that’s not mine

It starts taking over, controlling my body.

I want to leave.
