Run Friend Run

May 10, 2010
Run child run,
away from the burnt out sun
that casts shadows on your face
and your hopeless soul

Run girl run,
away from the blood and genetics
that do not determine
your own fate

Run friend run,
away from that smile
that exists no more
but will one day soon

Run daughter run.
away from bruiser, the pain, the torture
of the man you call your father

Run towards the heavens you praise,
the friends who hold,
the lover you cherish,
For they are the family
that will make you rise like a phoenix
instead of fall like a dead, red leaf
