Run So Far Away

By Caleb James K.

The girl ran away
so far away
from home.

Where the abuse lay
if she would stay
she had no choice but to go.

And so she ran
without a plan
because she dared to say no.

To the man
the filthy man
for who no didn’t mean no.

Away she went
emotions spent
she never before felt so low.

But she was free
to live and be
more than a piece of dough.

For his to play
with anytime of day
whenever he was ready to go.

That’s why before she ran
she killed that man
and now it would be so.

That no other girl would fall
victim to it all
because she finally made him understand the word no.
