Stay, Don’t Run

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “run.” Use it as a noun, a verb, use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!


And I froze
My mind empty
I could not conjure
Any thought to this
My goto reaction
In times of stress
A dream
A vision
A fantasy
To run
To run
To run
Far away
To a new beginning
To a new start
To new hope
But I’ve never done it
I always stay
Stay and fight
Stay and persevere
Stay and grow
For escape
Is but temporary
And troubles will follow
They do not fade
Fade into the burning sun
The shadows remain
To teach
To learn
And only once
They are absorbed
Is their darkness
Lit into extinction
For that is progress
That is the purpose
Of this Earthly existence
