Every now and then
you must come face to face
with the thing that hurt you most
and broke your heart in two.
And you must face the gnawing pain
that eats away at you.
After so long hiding,
you'll realize there is nowhere else
and you will have to face the man
that lies deep, down inside.
Face to face
to fight an inner war
and end your lifelong struggle.
Find who and what you really are.
You can only run
so hard, so long
before realizing that you are losing
your own race.
You'll get tired of gasping for air
and then come face to face.
