In fear, we run,
In fear, we fight,
In what ways do we run?
In what ways do we fight?
There are many ways to fight and run.
I was afraid of him,
My verbal words were a way to fight,
I was smaller than him,
He knew how to fight,
Using verbal words were the only way to beat him.
Cutting all connections from him was a way to run,
Staying with him was like being frozen from fear,
Eventually, I unfroze and chose to run,
There were constant panic attacks while trying to endure the fear,
The panic attacks lessened the moment I chose to run.
You see we run and fight in many ways,
Do I regret running?
No, my body symptoms were protecting me in different ways,
I wouldn’t have a good life if I hadn’t started running,
Thus, I say “thank you body for trying to alert me of the danger in many ways.”
