Escape

 

I got to escape for one week
All the pain and hurt I was feeling
The thoughts and emotions that kept me reeling

There was different pain there
Cut legs and bruised arms
Hot sun beating on my body
Sweat running everywhere

I was there to help those in need
Those who lost everything
They had nothing left of their life
They really had the strife

It was all a wonderful feeling
To help and show compassion
To folks I did not even know
To let them know there was people that cared

Many emotions were shared
With victims and workers alike
So many of us thousands of miles apart

The escape only lasted for a short time
Then the journey began
The journey to back home

Taking all I learned
To bring back here
To help me keep my life in perspective

I have learned 
Yes you can escape
But you can never run away
Run away from it all

It is all here waiting
For my return
For me to continue on my path
To self recovery
A path that can lead 
To peace and happiness
