Freedom From Darkness (A Poem)


This is a poem that will be featured in my upcoming poetry book The Inevitable Intermission. I won't go into too many early details about the book other to say that the theme of coping with modern life and how it pertains to separating the reality from the fantasy. At the moment I am leaning towards this being the first poem in the book.

Sometimes we learn to stop asking questions
Because searching for answers is exhausting
Sometimes we learn to disconnect
Because being in the loop is overwhelming
Sometimes we learn to follow a new path
Because the old one has come to a dead end
Sometimes we need to learn to get away
Because the spirit craves liberation
Sometimes we have to close our eyes
Because refreshment is sorely needed
Sometimes we need to let everything go
Because we wish to become brand new
