Escape from Everyday


In silence we hide
the things everyone must know1
but we refuse to accept

without a fight
we will not be pushed down
forced into mundaneness

our hearts know secrets
share in hushed voices
dreams, hopes and destinies

we have just now glimpsed
as we peak above the surface
from mankind’s murky existence

to achieve the extraordinary
escape from triviality is essential
with apprehensive anticipation

we begin moving with caution
through black water disturbing creatures
that lie waiting below2
