Away from the World (from 1999)

I know… it’s not black and white. Pic found here on Pinterest

I close my eyes and shut out the earth, 
Away from all its panic and worth. 
I take a moment from its hurry, 
And know I do not have to worry.

I look for my emotions, find where they are, 
My heart it flies so high, so far. 
My body relaxes, I open my mind, 
I’m amazed at what I find.

I am totally at peace, I do not mourn, 
Suddenly I hear a beep of a horn. 
Then I hear more noise around me, 
Once again, the world has found me.

I open my eyes and the world rushes in, 
Bringing with it all its dreadful sin. 
I find myself being pulled back into its hurry, 
I know I must again start to worry.


June 1999 – This poem is unedited, although my fingers are itching 😉

  1. Adore this older poem of yours Bree, especially the 3rd stanza
    “I am totally at peace, I do not mourn,
    Suddenly I hear a beep of a horn.
    Then I hear more noise around me,
    Once again, the world has found me.”
