A poem about the occasional need for peace

Updated on May 27, 2013

How To Make An Exit

I wish what the adults had said was true and

that the world was what we made of it.

I’d reach into my coat pocket and with a pen

upon the nearest white wall draw

two adjacent doors, one marked “Enter”,

the other labeled “Exit”. Before the later,

I’d sketch thick black footprints leading

towards it, then slip my pen back into

my pocket before slipping out the former

while everyone stared down with sly grins.

      Great example of something "of your own making".

      I appreciate the insight and humor as well.
