Datsuzoku #AtoZChallenge #NaPoWriMo

Days come and go,

And life keeps going on.

I wake up each day,

And live my life of routine.

Each day seems just the same,

I go about living life like a machine.

How I wish I could wake up,

And take each day at my own pace. 

I need an escape from routine,

A place where I can be me. 

I need time to breathe,

To savour each moment as it comes.

May be I’d walk by a beach,

Or curl up in bed,

And read a book all day long. 

With an endless list,

Of things to do each day,

I crave for a break, an escape!

An escape from routine,

An escape from being a machine!

Datsuzoku : escape from the daily routine

Language : Japanese

I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that have no substitutes in English.

  1. An escape from daily routine is what all of us crave. Just a day sans responsibility not doing anything or reading, perhaps at the beach is how I would love to spend it.

    We are all there. I read something today. The universe is at its own pace. It is we who are rushing through life. The universe is in no hurry.

  3. Indeed, we want to escape from routine, to be free like a child. The world has so much to offer but we also have responsibilitys and fears.
    A beautiful poetry. 🙂

    I think we all crave this for sure. I do it by reading or going out with friends for a lunch meeting. 🙂 Lovely verse, but I think that would be repeated every time I come here to your poetry. The difference is that I am also learning a new unusual word.
