Running to Nowhere

You’re on the run

once again

Can’t hold you down

cause you’ll fight your way out,

you’ll crawl out the other side,

you’ll flee as soon as it all gets a bit too much

flooding, crumbling

oozing, seeping,

pushing it all away,

seeking a clean slate.

You’ll write your name in the sand

on many beaches

and watch it wash away,

the vast ocean

will swallow it up

and keep it forever

your name imprinted on the Earth’s tongue

your restless feet

your overcrowded mind

will retreat,

retreat into the dark tunnels of a hidden path,

It is disguised as freedom,

you’ll soon discover,

you’re rushing, charging, storming straight

toward a dead end in the road.
