I'm running out of breath.
I can't believe it's so hard to breathe.
My heart's pounding in my chest
As I wonder if IT found me.
I hide under the covers and pretend I'm invisible.
Then I turn around and IT is still there.
I scream and pray IT would just go away,
I'm running and running, but IT is
Right behind me.
I've been running from this thing for 5 years now.
I stop running and decide to face my fears
Once and for all.
As I stand face to face to what has caused me
So much misery and pain,
I stop.
I look deeper and deeper into ITs eyes.
Then I realize that IT is me.
