Independence Day

I’ve had a lot of summers
And I’ve loved them all
There’s no other time I so look forward to
But last summer
I decided
I didn’t like being me anymore
So I chopped off all my hair
and moved out of my parents house
It was my declaration of independence
Every now and then I just decide
like that
I don’t want to be me anymore
That I feel trapped in myself
And then I run away
to try to be some other kind of me
But sometimes I hurt people
and they don’t understand
They do not understand
that it’s just me
and I’ll be home again someday
Maybe they know the same thing I know
and bury deep
Someday I’m going to find some other kind of me
that I like better
And I won’t return
I can only hope it will be some kind of me
whose life includes all those I hold dear
