    Ever meet a man running from himself
    Better look out he might run into you
    Because you are the reflections of life recalled to his memory
    Leaving us all obliged to reflect on similar sequences
    Triggered by the emotional responses of this running man

    Ever meet a man running from himself
    Better look out he might be you
    Living similar lives of un-recounted pasts
    Only linked by passing engagements of yesterdays
    And yesteryears
    That are unmarked by clocks
    And uncharted by sundials

    Try to understand a man running from himself
    Because in the running we understand you

    As we try to comprehend why sleepless nights pass
    And he greets the morning dew with tired exhaustions

    Or why friends and foes come in and out of his drained life
    Yet he stands there greeting exits and entrances
    And still putting the blame on self

    And then there are the times when even his inner child greets him by
    Laughing at
    Or pointing the finger at
    And pulling the chair from under him
    Leaving bruises of black and blue in the deepest core of his exhausted existence

    Still we tell ourselves that
    We have no clue of why he runs so far from himself that he haphazardly hurts me and you

    So take my advice, you never want to meet a man running from himself
    Better look out
    He’s un-doubt-ably you

    Because when he gets tired of running
    He will have to confront someone
    And that person will probably be you
