Running From What?

Locked

Enclosed in a capsule of endless time

Trapped
Nowhere to go but out- must get out

Searching
There must a weakness somewhere

Located
Must squeeze through the crack

Escape
Need to slip away in silence

Discovered
They know that I’m gone

Pursued
The driving fear of discovery

Chased
No rest for me- I will not be caught

Beware
They are gaining ever so slowly

Panic
Fast are they approaching

Fear
Where do I go? Away, and quickly

Running
But they gain on me still

Confusion
A gentle voice calls me

Surprise
Am I running from the wrong person?

Terror
It doesn’t matter. I must run.

Strength
A sudden burst of energy

Determined
I will allude them- whoever they are- they will not catch me.

Locked
In the silence of escape

Trapped
The gentle voice beckons me, but I won’t go for fear

Searching
I must find a way past that sweet voice

Located
Slip away in the dead of night

Escape
Leave that voice and my old pursuers

Discovered
That loving voice whispers to me- calls me to safety

Pursued
Run from the kindness, it must be a trap

Chased
That sweet voice follows me. Where are my other enemies?

Beware
The voice gains on me- why does it call to me lovingly?

Panic
The voice surrounds me in warmth and light.

Fear
What does it want from me?

Running
A final push for escape.

Confusion
The voice holds me back. It whispers that it loves me.

Surprise
Suddenly the voice becomes a man. He has scars on both hands.

Terror
Who is he? “I Am!” he says, “and I have defeated your enemies!”

Strength
He holds me and loves me- I trust Him.

Determined
He has saved me from death, and now I am His.
