I have to get away from all this drama.
The only way?
I plug in the white earphones,
To embark on my calming journey.
I tap shuffle and out I go into the hypnotism of the beat.
From rocking out to Maroon 5
To swaying to the beat of One Direction.
I dance like no one is watching along with Cher Lloyd
I may sing along to Justin Bieber.
Music is my escape. No matter how tough reality can be.

  1. I’m old enough I had to google some of the named references you made. 🙂
    Good work, Emily
