Why can we not just have peace?

In this war ravaged planet Most people just want to be peaceful To get on with their lives, go to work, pay their bills Maybe watch a game, drink a beer with a friend, hug their family   They didn't ask for this, we don't want this The world is torn, society is stretched to... Continue Reading →

The Shire of York

Drawn to the wilderness

Drawn to the wilderness I run to solitude Give me sanctity Give me peace Let me be Alone in my mind In my own little world Don’t interrupt me Because things are just The right version of Messed up where I am right now
