I won't cover up my footsteps, let them know I ran (Inspired by today's prompt: running away. My first poem in ages!)

I Won't Cover Up My Footsteps

I won't cover up my footsteps, let them know I ran, I stood up and bolted before the questions began.

I won't cover up my footsteps, let them know I ran, I stood up and bolted before the questions began. And though I saw the faces and the shouts from behind, the tears blocked my eyes and deemed me blind.

My feet grew tired and my heart beat steady, my journey unknown, but I was more than ready.

My feet grew tired and my heart beat steady, my journey unknown, but I was more than ready. A lifetime full of pain and anguished cries, now my new-found spirit has seemed to rise.

They hurt me, abused me, marked and changed me, the tower of lies crashing down with the debris,

They hurt me, abused me, marked and changed me, the tower of lies crashing down with the debris, catching me unaware, I'm stuck with a broken heart, so I ran away to make this my fresh start.

I won't cover up my footsteps, let them know I ran,

I won't cover up my footsteps, let them know I ran, I stood up and bolted before the questions began.

... My first poem in ages! Sorry if you expected something better. Though, I do have a story that I wrote with the same title so please comment if you would like me to post that.

Thanks for reading! That's Iqra... OUT.
