R for Run

Run run run away, run if you can't stay
run till every fiber begs for mercy

run run run like mad
run till you kick the bad -

- far away where it belongs
not with you

let your legs go wild, jump high like a child
feel the power coming - oh you're alive

run run run so far, run till you see the star
just there above your head, it shines so brightly

run up the hill so steep, run down the valley deep
run till your breath goes mad and you don't feel sad

run like a horse so free, run like a summer bee
run like a bird on wings who fly off up there

Run run run my friend, don't stop till the end........

- then lay down on the green grass, feel the Rain on your face, Relax. Feel happy and Rich

Life is good.


Does running make you happy too? Please share.

  2. Running sometimes helps to clear the thoughts. I do it when I am extremely frustrated! Nice poem Eli :)

  3. Another lovely poem.

    I don't run because it makes me feel good, I run because not running makes me feel crappy. I think there's an important distinction.

  4. I don't run at this point but I do keep moving and for the same reason C.D. mentioned above - I feel awful when I don't.

  11. I represented my school at cross country running many years ago, but now I'm addicted to hill walking and mountain trekking. Each to his or her own!

  12. I can almost feel the breeze on my face! ☺ Loved the poem, Eli. Unfortunately, old injuries to my right leg prevent me from running, but, it's a nice thought. Conveys a sense of freedom.

  13. Dearest Eli,
    No, I've never been a runner, a walker for an hour or more; no problem though. Blessed with happy feet and legs; no problems whatsoever.
    Hugs,

  14. I have heard of runner's high and the freedom that running brings. However, I don't consider myself a runner at all. My preference is to walk briskly, even power walking sometimes or dancing! A different kind of freedom perhaps but not the same! ;) <3

  15. Never been fond of running. Not even as a kid. But I love walking. Especially in the mornings when the sun is just rising. And I agree, it just makes you feel happy all over for no particular reason. You feel lik you can do anything in the world!
