Rookie (Brumtown)

Running...


run, just run
forget everyone else
they don't matter now
keep running, never look back

run till your lungs explode
run till you cannot run anymore
run till your legs give out
then run some more

they'll tell you to stop
you know they will
they'll give chase when they realise
but just run, and they'll never catch you

run away from your fears
the things you never meant to say
run away from those that care
because they'll hurt you in the end

sprint, jog, steady beats, whatever
run, the tension will disappear
you are in charge of your own life
they just interfere, and wreck it

running is an escape
let it all out, scream while you run
tell them you hate them
but never submit to what they want

that is weakness, and you can't run if you're weak

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
