After the work of the day finishes
My to-do list all checked and done,
As the dark pall falls on Earth,
After the setting Sun
I quietly retire from the chores
And tip-toe to that place in the nook
Where no one can reach me for a while
Where no one can look.
Where I don’t have to hear voices
Other than that of my heart.
Where I don’t need to sacrifice
Where I don’t need to part.
Where my dreams come alive
and no feelings suppressed.
A life full of passion,
No love repressed.
As I sneak away from this world,
To the edge of my mind
I open the door within me,
In there, myself I find.
