River Carry Me Away
Oh river, carry me away.
Far, far away;
Nothing is left for me here.
With your cold, rapid waters,
carry me quickly away from here.
Over the many rocks I shall not notice;
the waters chill my skin until I’m numb.
Carry me away to a better life.
Anywhere is better than here.
With your swiftly charted waters,
oh river, carry me away.
A free verse poem huh??? Are you trying to run away from who or what? Anyway, we all felt like this one time or the other. This is very good and really cool.
Hmmm, this poem seems to show someone who was desperate in his life. And hope there is a miracle to change it for the better. Hopefully I am right :).

This is great poem, as if it’s easy to run away with everything. An escape to difficult times. How I wish escape is easy.
