ESCAPING THE MADNESS

I wish i could get away for one day.
Just escape from all the madness
That we call life.
To release myself from burdens,
To let go of reality for just a while.
But is there place that we can escape to,
A place that is free from
The madness that surrounds me?
No such place exists right now,
But i have been promised something,
A little secret that you should know.
It tells of a time when this
Contagious disease of madness
Will be cured with a dose of peace,
A dose so high that it will forever remain.
This promise is the farthest away
That one can escape today, so
Let this secret no longer be secret
But give everyone this great hope.
A hope that one day we can
Finally make that great escape
We all so badly yearn for.
For now we will have to go on
Just thinking of that great escape.
We can only hope to find a cure now
That can for a little while conquer madness.
Right now that may take much effort
To find just a little dose.
But now you know of a time when
We will not even have to search for
A place to escape to,
For there will no longer be
All the terrible realities of today.

Whenever I need to escape I do it through prayer...nothing like spending time with the almighty creator.

I have asked those very questions, and begged for answers. The answer I have come to hold closest to my heart. Is that the mind can be the worst cage known to man. I have for three years been reprograming my thought processes. It is a constant battle. Every negitive thought that enters my mind is emediately replaced with a positive one, and at the same time the perspective changes. I have found peace, but the downside is that nothing is of any great signifigance. Actualy It's the upside. My point is that it's all perspective. I do not see the point in our social behavior, or the system I once held dear. I am now determined to escape to a place of purity, peace, and one of love. Until I reach my destination I Look forward to the escape from this reality which I find in my dreams. Stay positive FreeSoul The Great I AM lives in you!!!
