Carolin Schwab

life's running


Life’s running

Just running through your fingers

Always running

Never pausing

Running running running


You see it


But without you

You’re tired, exhausted

Not running anymore


But where are you

When your life’s running

And you cannot move anyway


It just doesn’t matter


Where’s the difference between

Escaping from your life and

Your life escaping from you


What if you are your life

Your life is you

Is it fleeing from itself

Or are thou


It’s an endless struggle

Between  you and thou

But you’re the same


And there’s no chance to escape

From your own life


Always keeping on running


You’ll never be able to be live your life

While being in it

Because one of thou

Will never do the same as

The other does
