Time to Stop Running

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 21:25 -- Ash17

Memories float through like dark clouds,

Villains of the night.

I used to run from them,

Could never escape, never face the fears.

But something's changed.

I am no longer weak,

No longer defenseless.

For I have, for I am, the greatest weapon of all.

Armed with words, I shall rise,

And nothing will ever extinguish my flame again.


-Inspired by the poems of Amanda Lovelace
