Wide and far

Chest heaving heavily,
Desperately drawing in air,
Running away from myself,
Leaving myself behind,
Running, running as far as I can.

Still remaining,
Unable to run fast enough,
Still there in the background,
Peering, looking and wondering,
How could a person,
Leave themselves behind?

Never fast enough,
Never far enough,
Escaping my past,
Unable to outrun myself,
No matter how hard I try,
No matter what I do,
Always stuck with myself.
