Feet pounding against the ground

frantic eyes looking all around

for something that may be behind,

but it all could be in my mind.


There’s nothing there but my gut’s

telling me not to give up.

Is there something behind the bush?

Or maybe I’m just thinking too much.


But my inner warnings tell me to run

and not stop til I see the sun

but the night has just begun;

and all I wanted was to have fun.
