Nowhere to Hide

by Carrie Dickson

Though you walk faster and farther than ever before, 

it still rattles its chains and knocks on your door. 

It is coming no doubt, seeking you out. 

There’s no running or hiding, 

don’t try to get out. 

It knows where you live, has done for all time. 

When Death comes for you 

there is nowhere to hide.
