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.
