Don't Run

Don’t run from your troubles,

As life takes you by,

It will only cause pain,

As if fire creeped inside,

Burning your desire to say the truth,

Afraid of the effect it will have on you,

Your standing in a lane,

Which way will you go,

Got only one chance,

To fight for what you know,

Keep it in mind,

Your doing this for you,

To keep away from the lies,

And show the truth,

Don't let it stay with you,

Cause it will only bring you down,

Say what's there and say it out loud.
