The Fight

I fear the future

But I accept death

The future is hard

The present is easy


I can run, keep running

But something will always catch me

Taunting me, teasing me, testing me

There is no other fate


I can hide, keep hiding

Darkened rooms and shadows are sacred friends

Somehow light always finds me

I have no escape


I can blend, keep blending

Crowds hide my identity and help me feel safe

But the sea parts and reveals me too easily

There is no ocean big enough to hid in


I can fall, keep falling

The ground doesn't seem to come, the wind just whistles

But the rope always catches me

Holding me, tethering me to this earth


Why, why can't I escape

Why, why can't I be free

Why, why can't life be straightforward

Where is the justice
