An escape

Find me an escape from this madness

Find me an escape from the past and the future and the present

Find me an escape even if it’s just for a day

I need to break free from this physical world

And go to a place where only silence is heard,

To fly with birds

Not walk on earth

I cannot silence my mind

I cannot drown my fears

So please lead me out of myself

Let me rest for a while

I don’t need it to take long

Just lead me out of my thunder-like thoughts

Before they destroy what I have built so far

And guide me to a place where only sunshine is seen.

Don’t let me slip after I climbed my way out

I can hear the voices called doubt

Trying to drag me back down

I can see the darkness trying to pull me back into it after I have seen the light

I step back and it takes a step forward

If I don’t confront it I’m only making more room for it to grow

So I’m gonna grab it,

Tell it I had to fight my way out of it and I’m not going back.

I’m gonna look it in the eye and let it know that I have grown out of it and I’m not shrinking.
