Tonight all I could think about was getting away. Getting away from all these people. Getting away from this awful town. Getting away from everything I've ever known. All I want to do is leave this place and never turn my head to look at it again. I hate it. I hate it so much. This town is filled with these fake people who have no sense of who they are. They have no sense of what life is and what it is to be an individual. I would be happy if I never had to see any of their faces again, nor the faces of the edifices of this desolate, worthless town. It holds nothing to me now, and it took me so long to realize that. To realize that the city limits can be passed and that there is more that the world has to offer.
Tonight I took my car and just drove. I was willing to do anything to just get away, even if it was just for a second. I drove until I found a spot no one had ever been before. A spot that was unspoiled by the wretched beings of my town. I parked my car and ran through the fields as the sun cascaded a brilliant, warm glow amongst the tall grasses. I ran and ran until I broke free into a sunlit field of promise. A field of hope for my future. I stood there for a moment and looked up at the turquoise sky that was turning a beautiful crimson and for once I was satisfied. I had found a place of my own.
With much love, Lauren.
