To Run and Hide

To run: To run and hide
Afraid to face the giants that arise
Strong man, strong man
Now too weak to stand
All courage tis faded
With an unseeming fate he’s faced
That of a great seasoned warrior
Who now is no longer conqueror
To hide: to run and hide
Unwilling to face the divide
On the bullet teeth break
As devastion fear leaves in its wake
Unable now to face tomorrow
Refusing to take that which is hard to swallow
Impending doom now closing in
On he who shuts himself in
To run and hide, to run and hide
Will only a little time bide
Till your fears you will face
As you are caught by your greatest test
Strong man strong man
Now too weak to stand
To run and hide
Will with defeat concide
Strong man strong man
Now too weak to stand

 

Story Behind the Poem:

This poem was written in a link with my article, ‘To Run and Hide’. It speaks of one who breaks under the strain and runs, but the old adage, ‘You can run but you can’t hide,’ sticks true every time. The one place what we can find refuge is Jesus.

Proverbs 18:10  The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
