This Mundane Life

Posted on Jun 28, 2012


Oh dear lord
I am bored of here
This mundane life
Traps me inside I fear

I long for a
Sea breeze
On my face
This I dream

Mountains too
Majestic and high
Away from cities
And starless skies

The clutter of life
Weighs me down
In it I feel
I could drown

To throw the weight
Off my shoulders
Carrying more as
You get older

Sandy beaches
Feet immersed
Warm waters
No traffic heard

No more clutter
In my head
Nature has cleaned
it, put to bed

I sigh in happiness
At this image
Only a dream
Of which I visage

One day soon
I hope it to be
Only then will
My shackles fall free
