I chose to leave the news left off today,
the tube that tells me the world’s dismay.
Instead I took solace in a little music
that might take me somewhere less frantic.
I am confident the world still does exist,
Rather the leaves in sunlight I can’t resist.
Is it possible to recognize our need to center
our lives, to inform our souls quiet love rather.
Sometimes in the break of day when I can see
my world around me is so simple and free
I have to wish I stay sheltered only here today
walk away from the realities of society’s dismay.
I left the news off for the remainder of this day
I feel a genuine happiness inside my mind today.
