I am a butterfly
running from death.
I am a princess
running from a dragon.
I am a coward
running from bravery.
I am a liar
running from the truth.
I am myself
running from reality.

hey.. my name's libby ;]
i felt like writing a short poem, and ended up with this as my final result. It didn't take too long to think of, though. This is to everyone who wants to be something else, but even in fantasies (butterfly, princess) we are running from something bad. and if we choose to be something bad (coward, liar) we will be running away from good things. thanks, and hoped you liked it ;]

I like everything except for the first two lines. I think that everything else has a better connection than those two lines but other than that great work!
