Running

16Jun2019
POEM

Most days
I feel like running
as far and hard
as my tiny legs
will carry me

But today
I am too tired
and my head feels heavy
and my body feels like lead
weighing me down
and making it hard to breathe

So I will hide
in a place no one
will find me
and pretend
that I
am going to be 
okay.

    Some days that’s all we can do! Hope you emerge to sun-filled energy.
