chased by a ghost

for years i ran away from myself
hoping to find some peace
desperate to avoid my suffering

and then something happened

and i stopped running
turned and embraced the demon i was running from
and, to my great surprise,
i discovered that my suffering had been chasing me
to invite me home
and when i stopped for long enough
to hear the good news
everything turned upside down

from that day on
i no longer ran away
from any ghost
