Do We All, and Always, Run and Hide?

by herespang

There is no Pill
Or Beverage

That can fix

One can run,
Into the open,
Escape the slaving dungeon,

But darkness
Follows, and condenses
Wherever He should

Lay to Rest—

One can forever
Only to realize

A Life’s Time
Is not enough
To hide.

So Young one,
You and your
Unspent Beauty,

Take to the Strenuous strides;

Learn to work
In darkness,
But resting in Light.
