Face to Face

by Poet

 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
 to hide
 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.
 one day
 You'll get tired of gasping for air
 and then come face to face.
