Poetry – You Can’t Hide Forever

You can’t hide forever,
You can’t run from what you are.
You’ve tried so hard to leave it all behind,
Cover up your battlescars.
You never stop, you don’t look back,
You try your best to leave no tracks,
But you can’t get beyond its hold
That part of you you’ve never told.

You can’t hide forever,
You can’t wipe away your past.
No matter how long you keep on running,
No matter how far or fast.
You think you can shut it away,
It always lurks, it always stays.
Do what you want, you can’t escape
These things don’t just evaporate.

You can’t hide forever
Well, how could you hide from you?
You can’t hide forever
And I think you know that’s true.
You can’t hide forever
And I think that you can see
The person you once were
Is the one you’ll always be.
