Trying to escape out
Can I get an escape route?
Destination brighter skies,
No smog, fog, or lies.
Looking for a place to spread my wings and plant theses seeds of love.
Because everyone here seems to be afraid of love; including you and me.
We are at the point where we are halfway in,
tip-toeing, sort of toying with love’s deep mysterious waters.
Yet I’m so ready to dive in and ride the biggest waves.
But I get the feeling that you’ll just be watching me from a beach chair.
You’re tempted to feel the great vastness of the ocean but life is comfortable there.
Your emotions, safe and dry.
But here I am over that sureline, it might be time to just sail off.
You seem to be handicapped by the idea of drowning,
caught up in a mental paralysis also known as fear.
So tired of fear’s life crutching illusion
There are things I desire in this world of ours.
I cannot wait any longer, not another day, minute, or hour.
Not sure what the journey may bring, but across this great expanse my island awaits.
So when you are ready to escape out –
Just follow my escape route.
