Poised To

“… I can understand why you run away, though… … You cannae bear it when others leave you, so you get in there first. You get them before they get you. But what it usually turns into is you getting yourself before they get you. You are hurting yourself by disappearing or walking away or not experiencing what can be truly wonderful about coming out the other side of a bad patch.

– The Chocolate Run

I’m running. I’m running as fast and hard as I can, because I am scared.
