The troubled world still looms
Sometimes I write to get away
Just lose myself in rhyme
Escape the worries of each day
Slip through a gap in time

It doesn’t matter what I write
Or if someone will read
It is a passion that I have
Not just a want - a need

It calms my mind and soothes my soul
As nothing else can do
When I am aching in my heart
It makes me feel brand new

But writing doesn’t last for long
The troubled world still looms
It’s always there above my head
A specter of my doom

I know that may sound trite to you
Or maybe just too wild
But sometimes I can feel that way
Just like a young, lost child

And writing helps to settle me
It gives me peace and calm
So if I lose myself in verse
Then I say what’s the harm
