I had to run today

I had to run today

for those who can’t

and won’t ever

again

because of yesterday

and last week

and last year

and years ago-

 

I had to run today

because I always run

for me

for my health

for my heart-

 

But today

I ran for him

and her

and them

who can never run

again

without pain

and hurt-

 

I had to run today.

 

The Words Flowing

I was overwhelmed by the words and the flowing beauty of the words that came over flowing.

I had forgotten what it was like to be overwhelmed by the over flowing of words flowing out.

The courage creativity of pouring out an outpouring of emotion.

The joyful celebration of youth youngness and unknowing.

I was overwhelmed by the words flowing.
