Leaving Home

By Elyssa M.

I always anticipated the day I would leave home

I was excited but also nervous

I never realized how much I would miss it here

I was never very fond of such small towns

But leaving now I know I will miss it

I will miss the way I always felt safe

And the time I spent with my family

But leaving now I know I will never comeback

Not to stay at least
