Run a mile or run a million.
Hide in the shadows
or hide in the light.
Speak nothing or speak lies.
Think with all your might
or push all your thoughts away.
Snap at everyone or ignore them.
Allow anger
or bitterness into your heart.
Chance a big thousand things,
for a small few things.

Run from your problems.
Hide from the conclusion.
Speak only when no other choice
is apparent.
Think only
what you're forced to think.
Blow off everyone
and go life lonely.
create your love
around the past's shadow.
Let yourself die outside,
without giving yourself
a chance to live.

Make troubles run from you
with a sly little smile.
Hide from your obligations
with some condescending words.
Speak only what will help you gain.
Think only about the things
you can get from others.
Lose your closest friends because
they see right through you.
Build people's hearts around yours
in lies and manipulation.
Get far in this world,
but always stay low
on the true-relationship meter.

Running far in your mind.
Hiding close within sight.
Speaking in whispers
so none but few can hear you.
Thinking out-loud as a joke
to secretly get
things off your chest.
Making someone laugh
at the expense of your rep.
Driving tears back quicker
with every smile that you fake.
Hiding inside yourself
is a whole lot easier,
but living in false laughter
is a whole lot harder.

Run on the path of life not from.
Never hide but always stand
in the spotlight.
Speak what you think
when you want to be heard.
Think as you think
with no exceptions.
Find people you love
and stick with them.
Let your heart be built
from feelings you've gained.
Always changing,
Never stopping in one place.

lol it's no big deal.. I hope you have fun while you're away :) ! By the way..I have a lot of work so I don't hold you to have to read them all.. because I write a lot and when I write it's very long. Actually, instead of all my work i would appreciate it if you could read my story " Just under the surface" if you can get into it and perhaps my second one that I'm putting into book form now called "Stalking the night" idk when Stalking the night will be added but it's one i wrote over three years ago... the beginning is a little dry and i cut it shorter than i wanted because i never had much paitence for long stories but if you could give it a try i would be very grateful :)

again, this poem is amazing. nice flowa nd everything, no criticism. also, i just wanted to go ahead and tell you, that since you have a bunch of work and im r&ring 3/4 of them, it might take a while (especially cuz im gonna be gone next week), but i will eventually have it all read asap.
