ESCAPE HATCH

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.

THE ROAD

 

 

Follow me on my journey.

Stay close behind.

I’m out for adventure.

Out to have some fun.

I don’t care if I have company.

More people to party with.

We’ll drive to the end of the road.

Then we’ll find another.

Until I’m far away from home.

Away from my troubles.

Away from people who bring me down.

Will you bring me down?

Are you from my past?

I must speed up and lose you.

I don’t want any old baggage.

I want to be free and light.

The car is gone.

Good!

Oh no!

It’s waiting for me up ahead.

I guess you can’t escape your problems.

They follow you everywhere.

DOOR TO NOWHERE

15turchia

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.
