A Welcomed Escape

Written September 4, 2016

So tired of all this stress
The hours I've put in this desk
Sending and receiving
Never truly reading
A glaze has covered my eyes

I've known it all too well
The pain of walking the line
Toeing the precipice
Edges of edifice
The view has opened my eyes

All these buses and trains
How they all look the same
Passing through the veins of Washingtonia

Packing for summertime
A welcomed escape for my mind
Shutting sounds that surround
Focus on earth and ground
It's so easy on the eyes

With the wind in our hair
Looking to shed some despair
Through forests and rivers
Wise and ancient timbers
I'm finally home right now

All these churches and trains
How they all look the same
Passing through the hills of Appalachia
