Somewhere Away From Here

Somewhere Away From Here

A Poem by The_Last_Spartan
"

I just need to clear my mind.

"

I just need to escape.

Somewhere where the air is clear,

Somewhere where I can breathe,

Somewhere where I can be free,

From the chains of reality that bind me.

Somewhere far away from here.

Where second chances are denied,

And my voice is unheard through the white noise that plagues their ears.

Where gunfire is a lullaby,

And a war is raging on outside.

I just want to go.

This is not a place I will ever be able to call home.

But somewhere out there,

A better life awaits.

Somewhere I can decide my own fate.

Somewhere I am not alone.

Somewhere,

Anywhere,

Away from here.
