You ask me why, as if you don't approve

                   and so I tell you

I'm going to college

I need a change

A fresh start

New beginnings

I don't want to stay here forever


You stare at me, as if you don't understand

                   and so I explain

There's nothing left for me here

It's time to move on

To find something better

Expand my mind

I want to build my own life
