Footsteps From Afar

Running, running,
Keep on going,
Across the cold, hard ground.

Running, running,
There’s no slowing,
Careful not to make a sound.

Keep on running,
It’s getting nearer,
The creature just let out a shriek.

Keep on running,
I can hear it clearer,
My legs are becoming weak.

Faster now,
It almost has you.

Faster now,
Continue with great persistence.

Safety is in the distance.
