Running From Myself

I’m running from myself again
As the fear running through my vein
Afraid of rain, I have to taste the pain
But I know my track will have an end
Where I don’t have to run again

I’m running from myself again
I want to stay but I’m afraid of pain
Everything fades but one thing remains
A tender feeling I can’t explain
And there you are running with me again

You tell me to be strong to face the truth
You stay beside me until the storm goes through
You strengthen me with your tenderness and warmth
I never realized that you’ve been running along
With me, when I lose my courage to be strong

I’m running from myself again
But then I stopped coz you helped me to remind
I got this thing called a reason
A reason to be me and not obliged to pretend
And a reason not to bother other people’s comments

I’m running from myself again
But this time not in vain
I have a friend to share the pain
I will not have to be afraid of the rain
Coz you’re here, and help me to through it until the end

its better to have a frien in the dark than walking alone in the light.
masuk ke lubang yg gelap bersama teman, lalu bersama-sama berjuang naik ke atas.

aku suka puisinya ^0^

Kaenya 'You' disini emang maksudnya God ya?? apa bukan? soale kalo maksudnya emang God, kamu pasti nulis huruf 'Y' nya pake huruf kapital kan, as our Al-Mighty?
entahlah... all I wanna say that it's cool.. yes, it's cool

This is another English poem I've read 2day... and it seems that I quite agree with ur notes in the beginning, since this poem presents a pattern of poetic song. However I still got a sense of glorious joy when I read it. Your way of repeating the sentence of "I'm running from my self again" could be considered as a smart move, since they build the strength of this poems' character.

Well done ...
I'll wait for your another English poem(s).

Sama, Toss kak Sin

(membalas komentar mu)
- Setahu ku memang sih judul Puisi saya ambil dari sebuah lagu
- Tetapi isi tersebut say abuat sendiri
- jujur saja saya bukan orang kristiani, melainkan Budha
- Dan saya tidak tahu kalau bait puisi ku termasuk dalam lagu

Terima Kasih
