Just Run

Sometimes I just run
Without looking back
Until I wonder
How big a dent I made
And I ask myself
If it’s worth going back
And repair it
How much damage it would be
Or if I should just
Keep running
Never return
Keep breathing
Never live
Eventually disappear
Into the distance.

this poem makes you think. all of us sometimes feel we need to run away but when you think of running, think of why you held on so long in the first place..
