As I Repack My Runaway Bag

written by: Musicislife10

I wonder where the hell I plan on going.
I don't want to go to my friends houses because I'm afraid that their parents will send me right back where I came from.
That place I can't even call home anymore.
I thought I was done with this shit.
But my father just can't let things go.
Ever.
Two years is too long to wait to move out,
and if he makes me, I'm leaving.
I just don't give a fuck anymore
If he wants to try and be a real father sometime,
I'll think about coming back.
But until then, I'm keeping this stupid bag packed
for the one day when he pushes me too far.

This may seem harsh, but this is isn't poetry. It's rant, and it shouldn't be posted. But maybe neither should my comment.

I agree that is isn't poetry, but it is prose.

Prose - noun
1a: the ordinary language people use in speaking or writing b: a literary medium distinguished from poetry especially by its greater irregularity and variety of rhythm and its closer correspondence to the patterns of everyday speech.

I personally believe that writing is for expression. It doesn't have to be rhythmic, or even good. In my opinion sometimes you just need to get things off your chest and onto a page... or in this case a screen. Writing is anything that helps you get through the day.

prose...yes. but still its nice to know im not the only one who uses writing as a vent. its my escape too, where we can push the limits between whats fiction and fact, where we control our world writing is writing.
