escape from reality

long ago
when i was younger
i would often find myself drifting
floating away in a boat out on the ocean
away from step fathers that made me grow up far too soon
away from mothers that blamed me for everything bad that happened in her life
away from "friends" who used me for their stupid jokes
away from hurt
away from tears
away from pain 
away from fears
i still couldnt answer it
i couldnt find the answer
id been searching since i was seven
but when i would sleep
when i would drift
when i would float in a boat on the ocean
i would be happy
truely happy...even for a moment
that i was escaping the reality
that i'd been stuck with for as long as i could remember
i was safe.

    Wish we could return to those carefree days of childhood, Katie. But as you describe so beautifully, this only happens in our dreams. Very nice work!
