A free verse poem of escaping from home.

Canít Run Away from Misery

Traveling to another land to escape,
Yet the house offers misleading hope.

Leaving from home to seek a dream,
But the next location canít fulfill bliss.

The exact problems are still alive,
Staying with you in your new residence.

Running from misery injures the soul,
Stabbing the human mind with regret.

But doesn't remaining with misery also injure the soul?

yeah, we can't do that. but we find a certain ephemeral sense of tranquility when we run away.
