Echo In The Woods

HEYY! Can you hear me? Is anyone there?

Everyday feels like an endless nightmare

Shadows cast around and leaves fall down

The breeze whirling them all around

Tall oak trees are scattered about

Resembling people all throughout

What’s the difference between the woods and the city?

Here in solitude, there are no eyes with pity

I shout and shout until my lungs strain for air

Hoping, wishing I might be heard somewhere

People ignore my desperate pleas

At least here in the woods, the echoes shout back at me
