Melissa Harris Composition & Speech February 1, 2011 Escape I can never escape my wondering mind, from all the problems the world has to my very own. The never ending thoughts, which start the moment I wake to the three hours it takes to fall asleep, follow me. They follow me everywhere. Is it death or just stress? What I would do to be able to find a place to focus on one dilemma at a time. A place of meaninglessness that I could run to, to feel free. This feeling of swarming bees chasing
