Where Are You Running?

Some amateur poetry of mine to get a point across…

.

Wherever you go, your subconscious will follow.

The empty bottle

The unabridged horizon

The synthetic smile

Your perceptions of then easily masked by the perception of now.

.

The undercover Ego

The sly lower self

The ease with which you perceive external fault

(Really your insecurity, your shame)

Constructs the veil you proudly wear.

.

The vision of the future

The unacknowledged now

Your dreams are a vice

You’re searching, but what for?

.

Your methods of self-protection

The reflection of yourself you fail to recognize within others

The future will not save you

All answers lie within, now.

.

You’re lying to yourself, yet you think your vision is clear.

Where are you running?

All you must do is subjugate your fears.

.

Wherever you go, your subconscious will follow.

It can’t catch up to you; it’s already there.
