RUN, Poetry by La Shan Knox

Genre: Hope



La Shan Knox

If they don’t put joy in your heart and put a smile on your face – RUN
If you feel a callous in their voice with negativity as their friend – RUN
If they suggest you focus on the problem and pull out the solution – RUN

If they don’t support your dreams and make mountains out of moles – RUN
If they don’t sharpen your mind and make you better, bringing out the best within you – RUN
If their words can kill a plant, and poison the birthplace of a butterfly’s wings – RUN

If they see no good and feel as if everyone is out to get them – RUN
If they make noise in the quiet air as peace surrounds your mind’s sphere – RUN
If they eat poison as their meal and have misery for their drink – YOU BETTER RUN

If they can’t see the person in the mirror is filled with rage and bitterness with a temper for a volcano – DON’T RUN
Sprint to your peace
Leap into joy
Dash into love
Swim into hope and faith
And RUN to the best of yourself
That beautiful person within that GOD created you to be.
