About the Poem

Fear of life, people, place and situations can leave me with a need for freedom.


Feelings of confusion,

Where do I belong?
Where do I go?
What do I do?

Pick up the phone.
No one to call.
What would I say?

Get in the car.
No where to go.
No one to see.

Deep inside
Is the urge to scream.
At what?

No escape.
Have the need,
The desire,
The want,
For release -
For freedom.
