Wasted Away


All the time I did nothing wasted away
I was like a drone
Doing what I was told
No freedom
No thoughts
No opinions
Just forced
Doing what I did not want to do
Wanting to escape
But I couldn’t
Finally I had a way out
But I felt pressure
As if I was drawn to stay
Brainwashed
I wanted to leave more than anything
But all I felt was guilt
But yet, I knew years were wasted away
So why would I want to waste more?
Pressure
That is all I feel
I feel like I have to stay
I am not allowed to be anything but a drone
I can not make my own choices
But once I have a way out
A way out of abuse
I have nowhere to go
I feel like I must go back
To every day abuse
Being instructed
Criticized
And yelled at
That is all I know
But yet I do know
All of that time was just
Wasted away
