The poem below was written in response to a writing prompt from Sadje at Keep It Alive. The #whatdoyousee challenge #144 is to write something inspired by the following photo:

There’s no need to cry
Freedom is close by
Just walk towards the light
Escape through the trees
Soon you will see
That everything is alright
Move away from society
Under a canopy of leaves
Until you’re out of sight
Come into the forest
Where there is no more stress
And no people to fight
Hike until the moonlight glow
You’re a beast, you know
You’d be safe in the woods all night
There are no expectations out here
No shame or blame to fear
Just the universe in all her might
