Moving On

Goodbye sweet friend it's time to go, Don't act as if you did not know. Now is the chance for me to show, You have become my greatest foe I'm leaving you at dawn. Remember when we used to be Like peas in a pod, you and me? Now all I want is to be free It's time I'm moving on. The sun awoke to bless my sky, Wind has given me wings to fly, I'm feeling so free, I cannot lie Turning I whisper one last goodbye, As I'm leaving you at dawn. Today has become my greatest test... Find a field where my seed shall rest Till when next year I'm a Dandelion pest. That's why I'm moving on. 09.08. 2014 Written for Anthony Slausen’s Contest Moving On
