Portfolio of Hope

Don’t run to the bear,

even when its snapping at your heels

waiting for you to turn around.

Don’t look back,

even when you can feel its breath on the nape of your neck

beckoning you to its fake guise of safety.

The calls echoing through the darkness are lies.

The bear itself is a lie,

an analogy for the fear you feel

towards a world that you don’t really understand.


Just keep moving forward

as you keep running,


As you run;

Away from the bear,

Away from your demons,

Away from your past.

As you;

Just keep going,

making progress.

Don’t run to the bear.
