Hurdles

Running, running, running away from something I don’t want,

Running, running, running straight into something I shouldn’t want,

Running, running, running from embracing the life I want,

Running, running, running from the person they all want me to be,

Running, running, running to something I can’t have,

Running, running, running from the reality I know and feel deep down,

Running, running, running from feeling like a failure,

Running, running, running, but beginning to feel tired from all the running.
