Run


Breath, take a breath.
Look ahead, see the end of your course, rather, see the beginning.
Never want to see a yield, never want to come to a stop, just want to think of a never ending fly towards happiness away from tragedies and worry.

Ready? Start.
Take off like a cheetah out for it's prey.
Go, keep going.
Heart beating, body thrusting.
Breath, take a breath.

Go on, keep going.
Don't stop, you can't cease.
Sprinting, you're soaring.
Running, you're flying.
Let your wings spread, just let go.
Breath, take a breath.

Running away from, or running towards?
Doesn't matter, point is you're moving.
Moving forward.
Feel the breeze against your fusing rosy cheeks.
The sweat on your forehead.
The air that you gasp.
Breath, take a breath.

Let the air out, let it in.
Let yourself go, let the troubles fade.
Leave them behind on the road following you.
But don't let them follow, don't let them catch up.
If they catch up, you'll be brought down.

Breath, catch your breath.
Breath, lose your breath.
Stop, you have to stop.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
