I run from the pain

I run from the pain of despite Creation of ideals align Traffic is not so designed I feel horror, like a dark light All flowing through me at night Those people are part of a sign I run from the pain I fear I don’t know if that’s right If the many become the fine I follow the light known to refine I know few will reach the hype I run from the pain

    notes are written on my ledger, suffer for this, also 4 that, agreed before i was born alive, suffering no, just tit 4 tat, accept your measure, it's be brave time, sow n reap the hurtful treasure, next time will be mighty fine, reap the measure yours 2 keep, logic, reason, a paltry crime, another sad lost sheep... re: 'I run from the pain' Russell Sivey Don

    I think many of us "run from the pain", Russell. Odd thing is that it always seems to follow at our heels? Reaching towards the Light feels like the best option, somehow it becomes blocked, sometimes it waits.:( Best wishes within "The Traffic Of Life", hoping your pull ahead feeling a winner! Mikki

    So clever Rusty, a brilliant verse with the rhyme in repetative mode which is to me, really neat. A wonderfulentry for the contest! Luv, Lizzie
