not looking back and running fast
chasing pleasures and looking forward
hidden from my haunting past
the truth is i am nothing but a coward

how long can this chase truly last
my denied feelings are breaking out
soon i’ll feel their painful blast
assaulting with tears, pain, and doubt

instead i welcome you my dear friend
whom i’ve denied your voice and peace
our turmoil can now heal and end
thanking God for brining us to our knees
