Set Me Free

I'm not really old,
But I am wise.
Been around the block,
Look in my eyes.

I give good advice,
But I don't always take it.
Say it's all good,
But I just fake it!

Keep living this lie,
I can't even cry.
I want to leave,
But afraid to try.

Why do I stay?
What keeps me here?
Stuck in this rut,
Year after endless year.

You've made me sick,
Messed up my mind,
I'm lost in it,
Myself I can't find.

Got to get out of here,
Got to clear my head.
If I stay here,
I'm better off dead.

Not a bad person,
I've lots to give.
I can't be with you,
I want to live!

My love has died,
I can't even grieve.
Just let me go,
I've got to leave.

Start a new life,
No longer a wife.
Going to live happy,
With no more strife.

I wish you happiness,
Just not with me.
We're not good together,
So set me free!

Forgetting what is behind and moving on to what is ahead is the best thing to do yet I surely understand how do you felt. You have a very great poem. a very strong emotion that cannot be denied. God bless you... keep writing!
