                hand side border


My life has been spent
Running
From the truth
The deceits
Myself

Told I am nothing
And will never be anything
Belief crushed
Hopes destroyed
Friendships
Nonexistent

Running
From the hate
The fear
The pain

Love thought
To be forever lost
The soul
Known to be black
And desolate
The heart
A broken thing

Running
From friendship
In the belief
It will not last

Running
From hope
In the belief
It does not exist

Running
From love
In the belief
It is not real

Running

Yet
Maybe it's time I stop

For I am not a coward
Merely a frightened and lost soul

Maybe it's time I show the world
Who I truly am
