Escape Route I lay back in my bed. I picture the beach, the blue sky, and the sound of the crashing waves as they landed on too the shore. The trickle of water as it rolled over my feet. The sun shone down around me and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. All the tension that was inside me earlier slowly goes away. I looked across at the neighboring beach. People were casually strolling along without a care in the world. Kids were building sandcastles and fishing off the wharf, having the time of their lives. Boats headed out the sea to make the most of the beautiful summer's day.
