Running Away

Growing up.
Becoming responsible.
I can't run away.
I can't pretend things haven't happened.
I can't ignore the truth.
I have to go back.
I have to face life.
I can't hide forever in my room. 
or my books
or my music.
I have to live in this world. 
 I have to live with my choices.
I have to live. 

Something that I've had to learn as I get older is that 
the things I want to run from the most are the things 
that I grow from the most.
It sucks.
Usually tears are involved.
I spend a lot of time running on the treadmill 
to make up for the fact that I couldn't run 
from my problems. 
From my life.

In case you were wondering,
growing up is overrated.
