Sometimes I want to go away
far, far away
and try a new life
just for a little while

Sometimes I want to ignore the world
and everyone around me
who doesn't understand

Sometimes I wish I wasn't who I am
so I don't have to deal with what I do

So why can't these sometimes
sometimes come true?

Sadly if wishes came true how far would each person go? what would the world turn into? Some of us deserve those wishes to just see how it feels, but then should you fall in love with the person you wished to be, what happens when you have to return to being "Me"? what will you feel then? and will you remember everything you learned from being you? I love your thoughts and can relate completely.

It was nice all the way but more especially at the end such a great ending to a great poem.

To the point. I like how you ended this poem. But remember in life (Whatever will be will be) we just try our best. If we get lemons...just make lemonade!

I'm 69 / a former Marine / I've been from Boston to Bangkok / married & divorced / made10 career changes and I still ain't happy. I wore myself out looking, and happiness can only be found within. But, at least you articulated yourself better than most.

The last two lines are brilliant! Now you need to bring the rest of the poem up to that level. :)

I know what you mean that's how I've been feeling but I wanted to share it anyway but I'm definitely going to keep working on it. Honestly it's like my poems are never complete I always keep revising them it seems like so I'm sure it will change :)
