Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Run

You can run til you drop
but you can't lose your shadow
You can hide from your pain
but it always will find you
You can get yourself high
but someday you have to come down
You can watch yourself bleed
but the blood's gonna run again
Spend nights with a stranger
but the sun's gonna rise
You can keep tryin'
but you just can't escape from yourself

So go blame your mama
Go blame your dad
Go blame the love you think you didn't have
You can blame the alignment
of stars in the sky
Go on and keep asking
Why?

But your houses keep burning
and you fan the flames
by turning your back
and changing your name
You can keep runnin'
but you just can't escape from yourself.

Nice. Sounds like a Bob Dylan song in my head.
