Tokyo Escape



 Urban jungle
 
 Concrete and neon
 
 So many people
 
 No faces I know
 
 I’ve escaped to nowhere
 
 Run into a wall
 
 A mass of those striving
 
 For something
 
 They will never find here
 
 This was supposed to be
 
 Promised to be
 
 My Tokyo escape
 
 But escape to where
 
 As the temples chime
 
 In distant Kyoto

  1. You describe something here that so many are doing. Searching for something “out there” that they will never find. When it is found “inward”, then you know the search is over. Great poem, Richard. Thank you. Love, Amy
