Sometimes I want to not face myself.
Then, at times, I want to go back.
Go back to undo the past.
At other times, the future is the key.
Either way, past or present, I am running -
running from me, away from me -
running away from reality.
Then slowly, surely, I face myself -
not alone this time.
I appreciate my friends -
who get me to live again -
live in the present -
where reality is.
Moving on is not easy -
but with my friends help -
self-acceptance is moving on within me.
