Release Me

“Just make sure you tell my family it’s okay, I’m sorry. But it’s too late, I’m sorry. So much weighing on me. I don’t wanna live to see another day, I’m sorry. But I can’t stay, I’m sorry. So much weighing on me.”

-Joyner Lucas, I’m sorry


I don’t miss you
To miss you,
I’d need to care
You would’ve needed to
be there
But you weren’t
All you did in life
was quit
A wife and kids,
you abandoned
A whole life you just
The only thing you could
commit to was,

So many things,
I just don’t know
So many more since you
left no note
Can you hear me?
You can, I hope
So many words
I never spoke
Now I can’t
cause you left
On those words,
I choke

Were we alike?
Did we share
the same mind?
I’ve felt so alone
through my whole life
Again I ask,
Terrified I might
Grow to be like
If so,
I’d probably choose
to end up
six feet deep too.

“Oh, dear Dad. Can you see my now? I am myself–like you somehow. I’ll wait up in the dark, for you to speak to me. I’ll hold the pain. Release me.”

-Pearl Jam, Release Me

Even if you don’t enjoy hip-hop, I still encourage you to watch this video and listen to the lyrics. Very poetic and powerful writing by Joyner Lucas.
