Leaving Home: a poem

Home S&S Expressions Leaving Home: a poem

Age 18, graduated high school

The days are over, when I was a fool

Off to college with an excitement

Feeling scared to make another movement.

Moving into a dorm with new mates

Being independent, I cannot wait

Out in the society all by myself

Where people fight for themselves

A society filled with corrupt systems

No parents will be there to guide me

Alone in the world with people I cannot agree

Because leaving home is not a task that’s easy

All the memories makes me feel uneasy.

The things I did, since very young

All the photos that I was among

The time I’ve spent in this place

Every second I want to brace

Now it is time to open a new chapter

Of my life, leaving the past chapters

Moving on with life on my own

With the skills I have grown
