The Runaway


The clouds gather to block out the sun,

Long enough so you can run,

Across the boundaries you have set

Let's hope this choice, you won't regret.


You stand alone to catch your breath,

And look back to the place that you left.

A dark and dreary road behind you.

But what of the path you're about to pursue.


In silence you walk, alone with your thoughts

The plans you are making of all sorts…

Some days you run, and progress is made

But other days the path before you doth fade.


And so you live a life on the run,

Hiding in shadows, away from the sun.

One day though you'll be caught in the light,

Till that day live in your perpetual night.
