Treasure Island

Adriana Martin

(May 25,1998 / Las Vegas, Nevada)

To Escape

Sometimes we wait for death
To come to us.
Sometimes we come to death.
To escape from the laughter.
To escape from prejudice.
To escape from people who make our lives
To escape fear, the fear to live.
To escape even from your loved ones.
To escape from loneliness, the empty hole in your heart.
To escape from people we might never meet.
To escape from everything I see, hear, touch, smell, taste and love.
To escape from the wind revealing its secrets to the trees.
To escape from the sweet air.
To escape from life itself.

    very good poem. a bit of advice i noticed right at the end you changed the context from this poem speaking about all of us to a personal feeling, try to keep it all in th same perspective. i like your poem though, its nice to know your not the only one who feels this way, [sometimes] was the one i wrote, check it out if youd like.

    Very true...As human we all feel that way..sometimes..
    Sometimes to escape life is to take life itself in us which is not ours...
    which we don't have the right to take unless God will take it Himself..
    this is a very provoking eye opener..
    a very good concept within..a very great write from a teenage girl like you..
    thumbs up to you, young girl...
    do write more... (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
