Away - Poem by Michael Webb

The sidewalk vanishes beneath my feet
As regret fills me to the fullest
People that pass are not people I meet
But fleeting shadows of dullness

Dreams I have far away in the night
Where I rise above everyday hostility
Are simply rare escapades in my mind
Only to awake to ghastly reality

Living in this free land
Is some what of a crutch when
Living costs you everything you have
For yourself you must fend

Desperately I search
For my inner peace
My place on this earth
I cannot rest until I reach
