The Great Get Away

She puts the headphones in and lets everything disappear.
All the anger and hurt just wash off.
She closes her eyes and listens to the music pulsating around her, the whispering of the words...
She sighs thinking, "If life could be this easy..."

The poem is a good poem; most teenagers could probably relate to the meaning. The first line, "She puts the headphones in and lets everything disappear", is a great line to use. The line lets you imagine her laying down and relaxing to music. The poem could be longer, to let the reader know how she feels or why she feels life isn't as easy as listening to music is.
