When I was really little, I ran away from home and I was mad and
really wanted to leave.
I was afraid of getting in trouble.
At the time, I ran toward my favorite hiding place, a swimming pool.
I dreamed about being famous and I wish Gohan and Geo was with
me being famous.
When I got a little older, I ran away from my grandma’s house to my
when my grandma was asleep.
When I ran, I expected that my grandma was worried.
She called the police to search for me to bring me back to her house.
At the time, I ran toward my friend’s and my favorite restaurant.
When I ran, I hoped for my mom would come and pick me up.
Today when I run, I run away from nothing.
More than anything I wish I could run away from my life.
Today when I run, I run toward my mom.
More than anything I wish I could run enough to be a football star.
