Running Away

by Mina (age 16)

Running Away
When I was a kid that is all I did
Running away from a lot of things
Being raped by someone I knew who
Said he would kill me,
Running away I said no and he punched me
So I gave up to take it
All I seen is blood, so I closed
My eyes until it was over
Running away
Because I didn't know the true meaning of love
Running away to drugs, weed to relieve my pain
Until I exploded
Running away is not how I want to
Deal with my situation
Now I want to change
When I am not running away
I will ask for help…..
