Running

Run for fun

Run to get

Everything

Done

Run to beat

Time

To surpass

The sun!

Never stop

Running

From dawn

To dusk

You feel

Stuck

In a rut

You say:

What?!

I’m not

In a rut

I’m just

Feeling

Cut

Out of time

Out of patience

How can one

Be out of

Something

They never

Owned?!

 

Run for life

Run for death

Run for health

Run for wealth

Catch your breath

Before it runs

Out!

Before it’s

Too late

Bite the bait

Say it’s fate

Never wait

For anything

Or anyone

Get it all

Done

Before the sun

Rises again

Do’em all

Till the last task

Till the last

Breath

Then you’re

Done!

When we

Drop dead

The tasks remain

Where we’ve

Left them

They can’t go

With you

They can’t

Make it through

The Twilight

Zone

That which’s

Outside

Behind

Around

Time

And space

 

Run for Grace

Yet you can’t

Feel your legs

Anymore!

You’ve left’em too

Behind

They couldn’t come

With you

They wouldn’t

Make it through

For bodies are

Of mud

The zone is

Of light

Mud and light

Can’t mix

What are you

Made of?

Here and now

Mud or light?

Or maybe

Both…

That’d be

Gross…

Enjoy the ride

While you can

Run for

An office

Or a cube

Who cares?

If you dare

Look or stare

At the stars

In a moonless

Night

All nightlong

You may

Find a way

To let your light

Light your life

Once more…

    القصيدة تركض.. يصعب الإمساك بأفكارها المتدفقة بسرعة.. ربما المشي أفضل لبعضنا .. سلمت يداك
