Run!

Run until there is nothing left

Then keep on running.

Run until the heavens weep

and the angels hide their faces

and cry, "By all that is holy it is enough,

how much longer till mercy finds place upon this soul."

Run!

Run until all hell shudders and laments

for all the evil unrequited 

and shrieks in baffled howls

"How is it the child could not be broken!?

How is the darkness transformed to light!?"

Run!

Run until you feel the unfeeling logic

that the pain will not go away

the only option to keep going forward

whatever hurt and harm may come.

Run!

Run until there is nothing left

and then keep on running.
