When people run away
You must login to vote
Do they cry the same tear
Or run the same path alone by the sea
Where seagulls fly low and duck high.
When people run from love
Do we tiptoe the same run
Through never ending forests of lavender lilies
That douse the air to let me fall asleep.
When people run and hide
Do they hide from the same fear
Or do we pretend not to care
Of the downtrodden soul tattooed.
When people run beyond caring
Does anyone really worry of these blistered feet
Which caused the legs to take to hiding
Or does no one hear the crunching of the sand and shells.
When I went walking bare foot by the stream
To wash away my dreams,
Did no one hear the blood seeping by the rivers' bed.
Did no one care to stop?
