Hide From the World

I wanted to sequester myself away today,

Hide from the world and curl up in a ball.

I can’t find the right words I want to say,

I’ve drawn a blank, I’ve hit the wall.

I feel all jumbled inside, that’s why I hide,

I’ll just draw the curtains and have a snooze.

I don’t want to talk, or discuss or confide.

And I certainly don’t want to watch the news.

It’s all doom and gloom and dark despair,

The percentage of people below the poverty line,

And the homelessness; it’s not that I don’t care.

If I had another property, they could have one of mine.

I need to de-stress, to relax and unwind.

Maybe I’ll get some koi carp from Japan

I could gaze at the pond, so tranquil and find

I feel no better off than when I began.

I’ve decided to follow the advice that I said

I’m going to do the one thing that feels right.

I’ll switch off the T.V and head up to bed,

And have a good sleep, so I bid you good night.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
