267 – Howl

A haunting faceless monster,
Forever just a step behind.

A life spent running
From an unseen ghost,
With teeth of fear
And darkness.

No more!

Turn around,
Run to face him.

Meet him head-on,
With open arms
And crazy laughter.

Turn pain
Into mere soreness,
And wear it
Like a proud badge.
