The Nightmare That Never Ends

November 12, 2010

Running down the street
Scared, Unsure.

Trying to get to the place people want me to be
But I can’t because I’m not fast enough
Not pretty enough,
Not strong enough.

I wish there was a way that I could change it
Be the person that is great, that becomes great, that defines greatness.

But what am I running to?
Or running from?
Him. You.
I’m running from everyone,
Hiding from the person I can be.
Shutting people out and letting no one in.

Trying to save the people who need to be saved.
But can I save myself?
I can’t get out of this mindset.

I try to wake up.
And when I do,
I realize that it’s not just a dream,
It’s the truth
I’m stuck in this nightmare

Never ending.
