I WANT TO…

RUN AWAY

BUT FROM WHOM OR WHAT

I WANT TO FLY TO YOUR SIDE

AND HELP YOU

FIND ANOTHER WAY

THAT DOES NOT HURT.

THEN I HEARD A VOICE SAY;

“THEN FOR WHAT OR WHOM

DID I SUFFER

AND WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH

THE SACRIFICE?

I WANT TO RUN A WAY

BUT TO WHAT REWARD

OR PRICE TO PAY,

WHAT LESSON LEARNED

WAS WORTH NO SLEEP

NO LEGS, ARM (S) SENSE OF TASTE OR SMELL?

I WANT TO RUN AWAY

BUT FROM WHOM OR WHAT?

THE ONE IN THE MIRROR

OR THAT SEEN FROM WITHIN ME,

THE LIES TOLD

THE REGRETS FELT

THE END THAT NEVER COMES

OR THE BEGINNING THAT NEVER STARTS?

I RUN A WAY

IN WHICH RAIN DOES NOT WASH AWAY…

TEARS CAUSE WEEDS TO GROW

BLOOD PICKLES MY SOUL

AND LIGHT REVEALS THE DARKNESS

STILL.

I SEARCH FOR A WAY TO RUN

AND A PLACE TO WHICH I MIGHT SOMEDAY ARRIVE

AND

  RUN NO MORE
