By reading this poem we realize that you cannot run away from your personal problems by changing your city or country.
For that to happen they need to change their outlook of life. Nowadays the hectic and stressful life in the cities has negative implications on a person’s mental health.
Therefore, a possible solution to this problem is to disconnect from the hectic rhythms of the city by enhancing the notion of retreat through sensory stimuli.
To achieve that, people need to explore spaces that will let them use their senses in a therapeutic way.
