I'm tired of dreaming.
I'm through with trying.
Tired of living, yet scared of dying.
Maybe things are good for you,
but look at all that I've been through.
Look at all the pain I've won.
I bet you think that it's been fun.
You never thought I'd turn away.
You never believed you'd see this day.
Look again because here I go,
leaving behind all I know.
Changing it all as I must do.
Not daring to stop and think things through.
Wanting to run as fast as I can,
not stopping until I understand.
Like why did I let things get this way?
Why didn't I leave yesterday?
How are things going to be
since there is no more you and me?

I am 20 and he is 22. We've been in a relationship for 4 years. We've had many breakups. Our first breakup lasted for 1 year, and I moved on. When we met each other again, my princess was 3 months. He accepted her as his own, but now my baby daddy wants me back.

I was in a relationship that destroyed my straight A's, and I later found out he was cheating on me, which made sense because he was always apologizing even when he didn't do anything and always acted like he was hiding something. Everyone told me to leave him, that he isn't going to help me get into West Point, that if anything he's only making my chances worse, but I didn't listen and I continued to give him time and didn't think anything of it. When I finally left him, it was the best thing that I have ever done. Although we stay in touch and are friends because a broken relationship is not a broken friendship.

My daughter dies and so did the marriage. Why couldn't I wait to see what transpired. I did what I did best and that was to run, how foolish the way. Ran blindly for the last time never looking behind to see if he was the one. Why do we run when we are scared? Is it because we don't think anyone could be there? If you start running when things get bad, you'll never see the one you left being sad. Don't take it upon yourself to run down that road on your own because when you look back you'll find you're all alone.
