Own World

Sometimes I need a break from it all

From the stress

From the responsibilities

I’m not running


I just need a little time

To reflect on it all

To look forward

And think of what comes next


So my headphones enter my ears

And I am no longer here

I’m in my own world

Where no one can bother me

The music takes me on an adventure

To parts of my mind

Where I had put thoughts away for later


The stress melts away

The emotions are put at bay

Replaced by better ones

New ones

Just for this moment I am free

I can be in love with me

And the person I have become

I see my past and have no regrets

See my future and it is bright


In my own world

Listening to the music

Closing my eyes and fading away

Clear mind and eased heart

In my own world
