My feet are pounding down the path

as fast as my fear will carry me.

I make excuses to leave rather than face

what is uncomfortable in front of me.

I have an off switch I flick if I can´t run,

I zone out and glaze over…it´s still running,

but I eject my body to my silent capsule.

My spirit´s leaving as fast as the gunning.

The bullets always catch up with me, i´m tired…

so tired. Eventually I stop and breathe.

I surrender and turn to face it,

I walk back to where it started and see,

the sun setting and the dawn rising.

And I experience it all, feet rooted.

All that´s in me is felt and aired,

a relief I am finally free.

I kick away my boots.
