"Shutting Out the World"

By Christian Taylor

 

Chaotic is this world, 

Where does the truth lie? 

Suffer by so many, 

My eyes see it everyday. 

Too much information, 

Too many sources, 

Truth has no place. 

 

Anxiety too great, 

Stress too great, 

Time to shut out the world. 

Time to be alone. 

Reflecting, 

A man and his thoughts. 

Thoughts on paper,

Focusing on myself. 

Happiness is never fleeting, 

Forgetting the troubles of the world.

 

Good to be informed, 

But in small amounts. 

Worry not, 

On what you cannot control. 

Focus on you, 

For you have control. 

Set goals, 

Find love, 

Find your happiness. 

World doesn't seem so bad, 

When you focus on you and those around.
