Analysis of running



I always run
I lie, I deny, I avoid
I'm done
I don't want to run

But how do I not
Am I ready to stop
How do I turn around
Prepared to take the breakdown

Left feeling burned
bruised
and broken
Falling to pieces
A puzzle I don't know how to fix

I may feel alone
But I don't think that I have to do this
On my own
