Substitute

Searching for a key

to make my escape,

I need a complete

change of landscape.

I’m fighting

the tiredness and the sorrow

and I don’t know

if I’ll make it to tomorrow.

The walls are closing

in around me,

like an island

being swallowed by the sea.

The answers to my problems

are drawing a blank

and it’s not easy

to fathom how far I’ve sank.

My mind is struggling

for a solution,

while my body is in

a bad need of a substitution.
