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
