He was a lone rebel

A fugitive from reality

His escape was not one

Like running away

You find in tabloid stories

People did not try to stop him

Because they did not understand

What he was running away from

It was not the family

Who were villains in his life?

What people did not understand

That he had to decide

What he was running from

The little voice inside him

Said, stay where you are

All will be well

But he wanted to be

Where no one knew

Who he was

He wanted to escape from himself.
