Outrunning My Boogeyman

You have proclaimed yourself

My Boogeyman

Using terror as your favorite tool

You have plagued my waking life

Infused fear into my dreams

Made yourself a scourge

On me and my children

You can’t catch me anymore though

I won’t submit to your rule

I’ve become immune to your oppression

Try to come after me

I have learned to outrun you–ha!

Your torments mean nothing now you fool!
