Choose to go through life’s motions,

With that haven, that escape — flower fields, 

A beach, by the glossy sea for some,

Relative forms of escapism, 

Mind palace describes me,

A portion of my intellectual capacity 

Reserved for the development of such.


And yet, with no motive to escape,

And the palace, still in place,

It was no longer choice, but routine,

To visit with no real cause

Stands to reason,  

That it eventually dawned on me;

The castle I’ve been building

Is actually a prison.

Thank you my friend, from the bottom of my heart… unfortunately I already got nominated for the same award and have it on my “blog awards” section, and I feel it would be cheating If I used it again 🙂 but I really appreciate that you considered me….perhaps I can re-blog one of your posts on my blog hopefully sending you some traffic ?:)
