Afraid of monsters
You spend your whole life running…
Monsters hide in you

    Unfortunately for us, we can't run from ourselves. We're stuck with how we are. It's good to recognize this in yourself... and then try do something about for the better. A very deep senryu!

    Wherever we run there we are. All of us have our own demons to battle, thankfully we don't need to battle them on our own.

    YUP! We can't outrun ourselves, can we? Yes, we can get help. Tolerance of others is also a great blessings, Richard.

    This is why I need my Agony Auntie, you're just too good. I need my monsters sorting out. I don't know if you're reading my mind but I've just written one sorta on this theme. Take care, Richard
