I have been running

By Inet Morudu:

I have been running….

Faster than U can Say, “Bolt”

I have also tried hiding,

In church like a mouse, inside the books,

The fridge, even in GOD's presence,

Just so that you won't strike me next

 

Could you not start searching

For me next year?

Did you perhaps not see somebody

Better suited on your way to me?

Did you really have to spot me

At rush hour?

But I made sure to be dull

Everyday

I even sacrificed color blocking

Just for you…..

Won't you please tell me why you

Won't stop chasing after me?

I closed the door to my

Comfort zone but you still walked through,

Boldly telling me that

“HE said so”.

I stopped running at the sound of His voice

When it said:

“Where I have closed, no one can open,

Where I have opened, no one can close.

Not even you my daughter.

Accept your blessing as it is.”
