The poem is below.


He thinks he has hidden from his past,
and everything the world knows about him.
He's in the corner, hiding from the labyrinth
he has created for himself - he's searching
for an exit, but cannot find it.
Fate is not so far behind him, smelling his tracks
through time. It crawls slowly, like a Minotaur.
Behind him he has left trails of his life,
like an invisible film tape.
It's a matter of time before he's cornered....
