RUSH Poem by Sonya Florentino

I'm walking around with words in my head
I can't wait to sit so I can write them instead
I'm walking around with words that must be read

I'm walking around with poems in my head
I can't wait to stop so I can read them instead
I'm walking around with poems that must be heard

I'm making my way to the road up ahead
I know I can't stop till I'm finally there
I'm walking around with dreams I need to share

I'm walking around with love in my heart
I can't wait to stop so I can pour it all out
I'm walking around overhwhelmed and burning

I'm walking around with songs in my head
.....I'm running...............I'm running..........

    I like this one, it has great rhythmic flow at the beginning but starts to lose it however the message holds it together nicely, good write (Report) Reply
