The Escape

January 23, 2009
By Ashley Leung, Manahawkin, NJ

I need to get out
I need to leave
I need an escape
I need to plan the plot that makes the night
Painless, silence, emotion
No tears
I need to escape
Get out of this place
I need to escape
I need to leave this house
Insanity
Insane
I need help
I need a door
A door to the outside world
I need an escape
Shut that door
I’m escaping


The author's comments:
This piece was written after a long day of fights and hard work. It's about needing somewhere else to go. It's about going out of your mind. The song "Good Day" by the Click Five inspired me to write this.

Great poem. I can feel the authors need to escape and turmoil. Well thought out and expressed.
