You Can Run But You Can't Hide - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

As fast as you can
Run away from great danger;
Time is really running out,
The devil roams, roaring his anger.

Hurry up! Don't hesitate,
Never ever slowing down;
You must step on the gas,
Fleeing from the enemy's frown.

He is always ready to attack
And make you an easy prey;
You must always be on guard,
Fall on your knees and pray.

Follow the will of the Lord,
Never have a heart of stone;
Obey Him wherever you are
Even if you are all alone.

You can fly high to the moon,
You can dive deep into the sea;
But the Almighty is all over,
Nothing but all He can see.

By the power of His hand
The world He can break and divide;
Anytime and anywhere
You can run but you can't hide.
