We can't run away forever from the truth in front of us.

I sigh with contempt
As it all falls into place

Covering my eyes
Cowering from the truth
I hide in a sound proof room

I take a deep breath
Scared to let it go

Scared to fall asleep
Scared to wake up
Scared to confront it all

Why now?
Why not tomorrow?
Or the day after?

Unable to hide forever
I put my hand on the handle
And the door finally opens
