Running is tiring

Filed under: Courage,Faith — pinksealife @ 03:51

I remember when I was five
I kept turtles
I went to the beach
Collected polished stones
I put them inside the tank with turtles
One week later, they died
I was sad
But the fact is they couldn’t adapt to the stone

Now I’ve grown up.
It’s sleepless night. Fear takes me out from sleep…
I couldn’t adapt to life changes at one time

I think the darkness scared me
running, running
I think the darkness scared me
I remember when i was standing on the ledge
with my feet tied tightly i inched to the edge
grasping a flimsy railing
thought my leg
falling
a hundred metres down
falling
falling
I guess the darkness thrilled me
I can recall the time i thought i wouldn’t make it home
I’d traveled too far and too long on my own
no bread crumbs to show me the way
in every direction i started running

The darkness calling
running
running
I heard the darkness call me
I’m always searching for a sense of community
even when i’m a part of it i’m not really
with you i found some rest
I dread the loneliness
but i long to be free
I know the darkness scares me

I know
With tears, shaking
I walk step by step
I touch my leg
Feel the wound from the scratch by the coral reef
Weary and cowardly
I walk
Feeling the pain hurts
I walk

Believing in the day when light comes
In the breeze
Me dancing in joy
Free and looking back
Relieved.
