i want to escape

i want to escape

It’s the only thought that keeps me sane.

Every moment, searching for a way to get away.

It’s not a life; it’s not living but it keeps me alive.

I understand it’s not healthy. It’s not being in the moment.

I’m not present when I’m looking for the exit. sign.

Living is a burden when the ones who gave you yours couldn’t carry their own, weighed down by eons of time, by the ancestors who were merely alive.

YOLO unless you carry the load of the ones who came before.

You feel it all until you feel nothing at all

silent screams

smiles unseen

unspoken stories

leaving you incomplete.
