"'Tell me something I can hold onto forever and never let go.'
'Let go.'"

I am running, running away from them

From the people who scream my name and demand my blood

From the people who are my chains, I am running

Drenched in sweat, covered in dirt, dust, grime

I keep running, I see sunshine

The light at the end of the tunnel, the hope, the future

But I am caught

There's a net, it is being cast over my being

Pulled, I am being pulled backward, reeled in like a fish

I try to run, to escape, but these chains are strong and I fear I wil never be rid of them

They are society

The author's comments:

This is how I feel when I roam through my high school hallways, the bondage of society always sucking me in and taking away my individuality.
