The Girl that Ran….

Bicycles still remind me of running away…….. to become no one!

As you grow older you tend to think you’ve stopped being scared

Of the small things —

Like how much you enjoy running away…..

But after all these years the story from one of my novels that stays, is

The one where the girl ran away,

started over in a new place;

Forgot everyone,

never returned and lived happily ever after — alone.

Maybe I’ll always be the little girl

that runs

away from home!
