My Sanctuary

“The sun is setting
The leaves fall-fall is setting in
There’s a slight breeze outside
It’s getting cold
I walk outside to feel the breeze against my face
I close my eyes and listen…
I live in a world where there’s so much life around me
But for that moment I feel like I’m the only one
The only one, and for that moment I picture myself in another place
My Sanctuary
I go over and sit on a bench and can hear the birds overhead
My mind starts to wander
Life wouldn’t seem so bad as a bird
They get to see the world
I would like to see the world
So much I have yet to see
So many people I have yet to meet
I open my eyes
I go back inside
Back to reality”
