Best Tulisha Blackshear Poems

+ Fav Poet


there is a place I like to be
a neutral place inside of me
not good or bad, not happy or sad
but somewhere in between

when things get to be too much
the fighting, stress, anguish and such
I close my eyes and sail away
to escape the pressures of the day

a tropical beach with sand so fair
I can hardly wait til I get there
to my hammock on the beach
where cares of the world cannot reach

salty breezes and sands of white
lazy days and peaceful nights
Corona and lime close at hand
I lay and watch the sun descend

so when reality comes to call
I close my eyes to escape it all
for you see my best defense
is an island I call INDIFFERENCE
