On Hiding 

You can only fall so far
Fall so far before you hit
Before you hit the ground
The ground rides up to meet you.

You can only run so far
Run so far before the past
Before the past runs hard
Runs hard and sprints to meet you.

You can only hide so long
Hide so long before you’re found
Before you’re found by those
By those who want to meet you.

Stand fast,
Don’t fall
Don’t run
Don’t hide
But let the past thoughts greet you.

And greet them open eyed
Don’t fall
Don’t run
Don’t hide
Or else those thoughts will surely eat you.

    I love the way you have written this with the repetitions really emphasising the rhythm. As for thoughts eating you, get another menu to choose from ❤️❤️
