Random Poem:

Running from the Night

I run under a night's full moon
on a path not so clear.
While the stars above laugh at me
and mock my fear.
I wait uneasy for the sunlight's return
Instead I am given little moonlight and no concern.
I begin to feel exhausted
but know I can not stop.
I keep myself running
but soon I start to drop.
I fall to the ground
and start to sleep.
Hours later, I awake to my hair being
nibbled by a sheep.
I see the sun shining
and begin to smile.
Because I know the night won't come
for quite awhile
