The Great Escape

Climbing rung by rung

Rope of thoughts strung

Reaching top of my crown

I took to wings, free thereon 


Escaping from abundant thatch

Allowing mind’s chick to hatch

On cloud nine I soared on high

To realize self like in do or die


Finding exit in the maze of my mind

Where thirsty soul was woefully confined

Doggedly I plugged on and plodded on

Bumbling, finally exit was stumbled upon



Soaring higher and higher into ether

And bright celestial vistas deep azure

They beckoned me closer and closer

Gleefully I scurried forward rather eager


Suddenly there was a mighty yank

Overactive mind had played a prank

Like a deflated balloon, my bird sank

Tall dream rudely interrupted, tanked




Tell us your thoughts
