Often my mind – it tempts me to think,

that all of my needs should be found in a blink.

the warmth of the sand, a forgiving new land,

might just be what I need to escape.


But what if escape is not a place to find,

but rather a powerful, true contentment of mind,

a place that can be found wherever-

in the depths of one’s heart.


See so often I am reminded-

there’s this truth that I know,

That when it comes to escaping,

we rarely have so far to go.


For the presence of God, it moves in waves,

it ebbs and flows and carries yearning hearts away-

into new places, my spirit soars free,

In the love of the Father,

I find escape and wonder in me.
