In The Long Run
Author: KitKatrina


It scares me not knowing what is to come,
Iím so afraid of falling I automatically run,
Iíve done this before and was paid back in the end,
This happened to my dad along with my friend,
I ran away from two problems in the past,
Only to find out that they both wouldnít last,
They wouldnít last because they got so bad,
For I lost my friends along with my dad,
The two most important people I knew,
Had vanished and I thought my world was through,
Instead of not using my pain at all,
I used it to help me get up and stand tall,
I used it for strength, courage, and hope,
Along with all that my pain helped me cope,
Losing loved ones and struggling to survive,
Made me appreciate the fact Iím alive,
That fact is strange, but oh so true,
Learning from my mistakes is what I do,
If not for mistakes we would never know,
What we were doing wrong and where to go,
Mistakes guide us to places unknown,
But as for the future Iíll never know,
So Iíll take my mistakes and use them for good,
Because life isnít made to be understood,
A little push in the right direction is always in need,
For I know thatís a fact, a great fact indeedÖ
