Running from reality,
I hide my secrets well.

To be what I cannot be,
I live a life of hell.

Playing the role of actor,
Yet, author of my own play.

Pushing and striving continuously,
From myself I run away.

Not wanting what life has given,
Nor what I have in store.

I run and hide from reality,
Trying to make it no more.

(1990)
