Escape by Jina Wallwork

 

It was a dark day and now it follows me like a shadow. I try to ignore its presence, yet I can feel it stalking me. I look to the future and I dream of running away. I focus on the long road ahead while I try to ignore my restless mind. I hope that if I create enough distance this shadow will disappear from my view, but it hides in my memory and then reemerges in a blanket of sorrow and regret. I want to escape from these emotions, so I travel across the globe to find a place of visual serenity. I fit uneasily within these tranquil surroundings because my emotions contrast with the tranquility of the location. I’m still me, and I still feel the same. Why did I run away?

I turn around and look deeply into my shadow. Restless, it waits for me to run. I must stop and face this memory because these emotions cannot be contained. I must take the time to heal. I must come to terms with the past. I must release these tears and let these emotions travel through my soul. I can search the globe, yet what I need to find is inside me. I must discover my inner peace.

A small bird keeps visiting me at my home. It flies to the back door and pecks on the window. I recorded this sound and used it as part of the percussion for this track. The music is a response to that initial sound.
