An escape hatch is what we all need.
A way to run away from it all.
I’m leaving no matter what you plead.
I want and need to feel ten feet tall.
I know life can take your breath away.
It can also deaden your dark heart.
Last time I felt right, I cannot say.
But I’m tired of playing this part.
A new journey is waiting for me.
New people and places to explore.
No baggage to take along with me.
I’ll travel until I don’t want more.
Some days you want to escape
to a place far away.
Meet new people,
Leave old baggage behind.
Open the proverbial door
to see if the grass is greener
on the other side.
But most of the time it isn’t.
A door balanced at the edge of a pier
might not be holding the answers to your dreams.
Home may be the place that has had the answers all along.
