Run Far Away

Run far away

From people who do not mean you well

For they’ll take all your happiness 

And flush it down the drain without thinking twice. 

***

Run far away 

From drugs and alcohol and sexual immorality 

For they’ll take all your happiness 

And give you emptiness with the illusion of pleasure.

***

Run far away 

From corruption and a lying tongue 

For they’ll take both your happiness and that of others 

And taint your name with stinky mud

***

Run far away 

From pride and self-glory

For they’ll take all your happiness 

And replace it with buffoonic ignorance 

***

Run far away 

From the voice of the devil 

For he’ll take all your happiness 

And leave you with damaging lies. 

***
Run far away 

But always remember why you are running 

Lest you turn back and see that which you run from 

And turn around thinking, ‘I’ve had enough evening jog for today’
