Can I just run? By Jon (me)

Can I just run away and hide
From all these feelings left inside?

Can I just run away from you
And start a life anew?

Can I just run away from my mind
And leave these thoughts behind?

Can I just run away from shame
And all this misplaced blame?

Can I just run away from fear
And never shed another tear?

I know I can not run forever
These fears I must now face,
But all I want more than ever
Is to run away to a safer place.
