So, I run away.

I run away from the reality

and its brutality.

I have no courage to face

its cruelty.


The truth

pierces through

and cuts my heart into pieces. 

The pain never eases but increases.


It chases me 

and stands in front

of me

and forces me to confront

the reality.


I am tired of being strong

now that I have been that for so long.

I feel a dire dearth

of peace since my birth. 


So, I find the only way

is to run away

and not face

the truth that stands before my face.



Running Away
