Run

Run
The moon is shining bright
In your wolf-green eyes
And they're howling after you
Run
With the wind at your back
Through your hair
Hurry toward the tide, receding
Hurry
Or you won't catch it

Run
The spirits are telling you
Screaming in hoarse voices
They will haunt you forever
Run
Like the demon you are
Quickly toward your goal
Quickly
You'll never catch it

Run
You can't escape it
The inevitable truth
But you can go down fighting

Run!
They're gaining on you
Run!
They're on your heels

Reach!
The stars are close now
They're twinkling in your eyes
You're basking in their embrace
Reach!
You're almost there
You know it
Reach!
They cannot stop you now

Grasp!
It's in your hand
That heavenly light is yours now
Yours to command
Grasp!
Feel your power
For you have done what you set out to do
They cannot take that away.

Turn
Face the truth that awaits you
Turn
Accept your destiny

Surrender
Let them swallow you up
Surrender
You have succeeded
You knew all along:
You can't outrun fate
But you can go down fighting.

Yes, you can go down fighting.

Author's Notes: A fantasy digression on my part. I was going to call it "Go Down Fighting" but I felt like seeing that before reading would ruin the drama of it all. LOL I dunno. It's kind of goofy and doesn't really mean anything...but it's kind of pretty and weirdly uplifting, I would say. Anyway, you can write your own reviews, I don't have to do one for you. I hope you liked it! MJ
