    Well, I don't know where it is

    but sometimes yes I wish I could run away to a new place far away. Where I can be myself and not disliked or hatred for me. Where there is peace calm and quiet. Somewhere surrounded by natural beauty. Where I don't need to go to work everyday. Where I can meet new people...
