Not far behind,
it's chasing,
I stay a few steps ahead.
Running from,
can't afford to be caught,
in dreams at night,
during the day in sight.

I Rounded the corner,
knowing it was right on my hills.
I stopped and waited,
weary and tired,
this is it!
I'm not running anymore.

As I stood waiting,
I heard its footsteps.
Just as it approached,
I jumped out.
It ran right into me.
We wrestled and fought,
the earth shook,
the dust flew,
everything around,
fell to the ground.

As the air cleared,
I still stood.
Right in front of me,
it stood too.
We were eye to eye,
it couldn't beat me,
I couldn't beat it.

The fight was a draw.
Now it walks beside me,
cool and calm.
I walk on,
never to run again.
It understands me,
I understand it.
It knows I'm no longer afraid,
I know it never could be afraid.

We respect each other.

Vivid narration. Compelling, and I love the end. You came to terms.

I like this. It could be a poem about coming to terms with a part of yourself you've denied for some time. Or it could be a poem about walking your dog. It reads well both ways for me.

Grady, I've had those kind of dreams. Used to have them all the time. But once I face my denial, they went away, and I've never had them since. This poem tells about a dream that probably many have had.

Love and peace, Patty
