Always On The Run

Poem By Ray Hansell

I'm always running
But getting no where
Living life on the run
With worries but no care

I'm indebted to no one
So I keep moving on
Living life always running
Until the day is gone

At night I find a motel
Just me and a bottle of Jack
Living life with no regrets
Never looking back

This life that I'm living
Is the life That I chose
Who I am and where I go
Nobody really knows

A long time ago
I left my past behind
Took off for the road
Not knowing what I'd find

But evey town I've been in
I find no satisfaction
I have to keep on moving
No time for relaxing

Looking over my shoulder
Where ever I go
Who's there behind me
I must always know

The law wants to find me
For the things that I've done
So you see that's the reason
I must always be on the run

A Child's World

Welcome to my world
Some say it's a simple place
Well that may be so
But at least, there's always a smile on my face

A Cheater Caught

You took off with him
Seeking something new
Little did you know
The things that he would do to you

A Contented Mother

It seems for so many years
I've lived my life for someone else
I put my feelings and needs
Away somewhere on a shelf


Sad eyes
Sad heart
Sad days
When apart

One Should Never Feel

A man all alone
No one to hold
Existing in a place
That's lonely and cold

No One Really Knows

I don't look to the future
Because the future is not mine
I live each and every day
One day at a time
