"Its not to late to runaway,"
A voice tells me,
"To flee from pain
Nothing left to gain
Why stay and fight
Why not take flight
And save your life
Lay down your sword
Your pride ignore
Why not just leave
Ditch dignity and flee
No regrets you’ll see
So come with me and run
Just run and don’t look back
You cant escape the fact
When your death is pointless
Why not just runaway
To fight another day
What do you say
Leave this battle with your life
While breath still rife
So go lick your wounds
Take time to heal
How much pain must you feel
Before you give in
This pace is to fast
You just wont last
So why not runaway?"
He asks
Why not runaway
To myself I say
I ask myself why
Must I stay
And die
Why?
Why must the pain go on
Why ?
Why when I have nothing to gain
Why do I refuse to stop
Why place myself atop
A mountain of doubt
When I am about to lose
My sword growing in weight
A silent debate
Blood flowing from my wounds
He asks,
"Why not come with me and run?"
Why not runaway?
Should I just run away?
HELL NO!
Even if I die
I will not give up
Is not in my nature
Even if it goes against logic
I guess I’m just immature
But preach to me not
Im stubborn through and through
Not ‘cause that’s what I was taught
But I will not run away
Even if I see not new day
I would rather die and go to hell
Than run away
Oh well,
Time to face my demons.
