I want to leave this place
though it’s not an escape.
I’m no longer running in the race
to badge the all rounder’s cape.
The desire to do so is minimal
and simple—to start afresh.
Letting the soul experience its renewal
and breathe after breaking free from its mesh.
It’ll give me some time to rest
and mend some wounds inflicted on my heart.
It’ll refill in me my long- lost zest
and prepare me to let this journey restart.
