Dreams of Disengagement

Back to Nature

Tangled up inside

I get lost

amid a sea

of endless connections

forever unable

to drift away.


Requests for time

a favor or two

never stop

endless access

feeds constant demand.


Attempts to get away

only fuel the need

for others to tug

and reel me back in.


Casting a line

out into the ocean

I imagine a place

so very far away

where every thing

is at peace

and every one is without need.


I see myself in a dream

on a big wide ship

where no signal can reach

awash with the waves

underneath a starry sky

free from all ties.

I have dreamed of such a place as well, Truthfornow. If there were a place on earth where we would be able to live freely and others were also equally free to live well. Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem.
