We run from Pain
We run from Hurt
We run from the Past
We run from Love
We run from Life
We run from Truth
We run from Fear
We all run. We all run for our own reasons. We run because something in us is telling us we have to.
We hide from those that know us
We hide from the wrongs we’ve done
We hide from true love
We hide from any truth at all
We hide from unfamiliar territory
We hide from the light
We hide from anything that will show us as we are
We all hide. We hide when we are afraid. We simply hide because it is easier to hide than it is the face the world.
Once we have stopped running, and once we have stopped hiding we are left just at we started. Nothing has been solved. Nothing has changed. And worse yet, we may have run too far. We may have hidden for too long.
We may now have lost touch with any sense of reality. We may have lost touch with anything that could have helped us had we only stopped sooner.
And yet is seems that nothing or no one could have stopped us. Fight or Flight. When we are not ready to fight, or we are just not capable of fighting all there is left to do is run, and inevitably hide.
There will come a time when you can run no further. There will come a time when you cannot hide any longer.
There will however never be a time when what you have run from goes away. It will always be there. Until one day, you are ready and willing to fight.
