I need to go and never come back unless I want to visit my family.
I’ve been hurt too many times, by you and by others, by illness and by death.
I cannot stay here for I need to escape this everlasting pain.
I wish you all well, although I’m not sure you wish this for me.
Now it’s just goodbye and best wishes or a simple farewell.
I wrote this a while ago and for some reason never posted it, so here you go.
