The Escape

Just keep running a steady run,
Keep going on-
But lo! Who peeks behind you,
Who jumps and says, “Its just a gamble,
“You needn’t sore your feet.”

Trees growing their tallest;
Branches naked on their skin,
Moon shining in the dark;
Sun blaring through the day,
They say in chorus, “Its just a gamble lad,
“You needn’t roughen your palms.
“Just take the easy way out.”
