Airda Jones

Rookie (Sept.17,1988 / US)

Away, Away


I tried and I tried
But I can't say I can
I never could truly
So that is why I ran

Away from hurt
Away from pain
I ran so much that
I went dizzily insane

But I have to pick up
Have to keep going
As far away as I can
Running but still knowing

That I hide my heart
But when I go
You find it along the way
And then you follow

If you always come
Why even try when
No matter how far I run
You always catch me in the end.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
