Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The hope that one can outrun painful secrets.

Running Away

by Beck Fenton

The earth looked far below

My life seemed held in space


No, fleeing from all who knew

My secrets

Until I find my sanctuary

And can lie on the soft sands

Feeling the warm sun upon my face

Wondering what to do now

That all is lost to me.

Please don't let the rain cloud my happiness again.
