Escaping from Reality

trying to pinch myself,if this is true.
counting one to three w/o a clue.
asking myself why I'm here
nothing is sinking,everything is not clear

wondering if this is the blue horizon
wishing for unchanging season
i shouldn't look back,i need to keep moving
i should move forward & keep searching.

asking myself if this is what it is
nothing to let go,nothing to miss
having my little world,creating my own.
a place that no one has ever known

catching a breath,just running
i was glad, glad that I'm not hiding.
feeling so free.
free from everything i see

i was about to cross the boarder line
but i heard something, it was like a sign
it was a whisper,from a familiar voice.
a sign,saying i need to make a choice

it was a voice saying i was escaping,
i stopped and thought about everything.
i realized,that i was not free but lost
stood still & paused

this is definitely the great escape.
my own world, just recorded in a disc & tape
this mind full of curiosity.
a reason that made me escape from reality.

so i listened to the voice that whispered.
i closed my eyes and muttered,
"let me know the truth & set me free"
just a glimpse,i was back where i should be.
