When you stand out, you want to start things over
Changing your life is not an easy move
Something so drastic is a risk for others
Running away is not the thing to choose

In her possession was what others dream of
A roof overhead and simple tasks to do
Never surprising, always keep it stable
Mowing the lawn would leave a sweet perfume

But it tears her up inside
To see her traveling friends may not return again
Her found family would provide
The things that normal life gave her in short supply

Could she leave home in search of greener pastures?
Can she discard responsibilities?
Moving from place to place is trepidatious
Her home would expect her to be safe and clean

But it rips her heart inside
Her pals might go for good, but no one understood
They're more than just a show
They saw her as she was, and never made a fuss

Her pain would not subside
The day was coming close, and she could stay or go
Looking back into her home
she held on to the door, but could remain no more

Running away is not a thing done lightly
Joining the circus can evoke a laugh
Itinerancy is what you see in stories
For her it was truth, her freedom found at last
