My body fights while my mind runs away.
How can I get it to stop running, and stay?
My body, it lives, though my mind…it plays dead;
And quite convincingly, acts as brainless instead.
You do not know me…as I am not there.
I hide and you do not notice or care.
You call me a moron for being unaware;
As I run further away in despair.
What can I do? And what can I say?
To make my restless, broken soul stay?
I look out, trapped behind my eyes,
And it’s no longer me who hurts or cries.
My body fights while my mind runs away;
Though sometimes I wonder…why should it stay?

Run away. Be free.
To them you’re only a body.
Run away, and be,
Whoever you may wish to be.
Run away. Be whole.
Agenda’s will steal ‘way your soul.
Run away in fright,
From those who align wrong with right.
Run away, my friend,
Or they will use you ’til the end.
Run away and fly,
For they will not care if you die.
They will try and convince you to stay,
Yet run away,…
Run away, anyway.
You’re more then the politics of the day!

Take my hand. I wish to leave…
This asylum of white.
Hold on tight…I seek reprieve.
Let’s escape into the night.
Take my hand, and lead me home,
To walls of brick and stone.
I’ve always wanted a home,
Where I don’t live alone.
Take my hand, and hold me tight,
For I fear humankind;
But it’s okay…it’s all alright…
In the world within my mind.
K. Aldaya, 1/7/16
Quickly. Run as fast as you can!
Do anything you can,
To breathe, yes, one more day;
And avoid the fast-looming disaster.
Move. Move your hands and move your mind.
Do now. Right now.
Focus on what you find.
Think not of lacking air.
Keep smiling,…walking, talking anyhow.
Busy. Keep busy and avoid,
Lungs to which you’re devoid.
Pretend you can breathe yet.
No one will know if you don’t stop to sing.
Keep on moving. Run faster still.
Hide away so no one will…..
Notice you’re not breathing;
For you’re nothing,
But dancing bones living in skin.
