Running from Chaos
by J.Q. Gonzales


Serenity of Life

In the midst of the city
Lies the ruins of uncertainty
Chaotic world there is
Where there is no real peace

Escaped to a tropical island
From the city of chaos
To find one's self
The meaning of life.

Life, searching for its meaning
Have been found so demeaning
If ever one comes across it
Death will give its treat

Chaos, how can one escape
When self-esteem
Is at its breaking point
And there's no form of godliness.
