And Still I Run...

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

And Still I Run…


I past the buildings,

In my peripherals,

Shades of gray, black and white,

My breathing is heavy,


I dare not look back,

Being chased by an unknown entity,

I can never escape from it,

An untold curse upon me,

I feel it on the tiny hairs of my neck as they stand up,


More heavy breathing,

The shades of gray turn into shades of green,

I look up to the bright blue sky,

Only to see a menacing storm in the not too distant forming in front of me,


Do I turn back?

I can’t, it’s not an option,

Stuck between a rock and hard place,

Which direction do I go?


One foot in front of the other,

Ever so determined,

The light dims and gives way to the shadows,

The unknown beyond me all around,

Fear rising inside,


And Still I run….
