Take My Hand and Run*

I am standing in the middle of a room
without lights and windows
I try to light a candle to break the dark away
but then I see all over shadows

Reading my magazines trying to forget memories

my mind don’t wonna keep

Revenging my enemies
the ones who killed families
but I ain’t gonna start to kill

Take my hand and run
away from the sun before we will be found
and burn us in the ground

Lying on the floor trying to fall asleep
but my body shivers from the cold

I should have gotten up to that ship

and never…never let you go

But I made a mistake
I let you walk away
and I can’t find you now

I let my feelings down
I shouldn’t have turned around

and now I wonder where you are.

Take my hand and run
away from the sun before we will be found
and be burned in the ground

Take my hand and run and don’t you ever come back

try to avoid the sun
before you get all burned up

Just take my hand and run away.


About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
