Another World

A world so dark and gray

So discouraging and uninviting

When all seems moot,

Take me to another world


Let me live another life

If only for few hours

I can empathize,

I can sympathize


If a day could spare me,

Oh, just an hour,

I could feel a something different

I could learn a whole new mind


Yes, please,

Just give some time alone

Half an hour with a text

And I’ll come back


I promise,

Just ten minutes

Alone with a book,

Any book


I’ll come back

To my own problems,

To my own world,

That is far less gray
