You must seek refuge in an environment of script and rhyme
You are a poet and possess the ability to move from plane to plane
Lock away the memories and reality that leave you in despair
Erase the trouble that disturbs you with the hand and pen
Press down firmly, and allow your imagination to lead
Allow the ink to defeat the pain that besets you, and often, no one sees
Tell us instead through your eyes
Of the conflicts you face,
Or if it pleases you
The scent of a sweet summers breeze
Wash away the burden that is governing your life
Write away all that afflicts the soul with strife
So, when the world overtakes your heart and mind
Press down firmly with the pen,
Smile triumphantly and escape through time.
