No.204: Nowhere to Run


I couldn’t run from the darkness even if I tried.

You can’t run from yourself. 
Even in suicide, the death is merely the mind 
catching the body up to speed.

So the way I see it,
I can either flood my insides with the Light,
or be consumed by the beast.
I know better than to look in the mirror 
and play myself.

There is no in-between.
