A Runners Lament - Poem by Nick krakana

A runner I've always been

Closer than my next of kin

It's kept me in a natural way

When things went wrong along life's way

When I run my mind is free

My troubles seem to escape from me

The sky is bluer the sun is brighter

The birds are louder 
life is better

Do you like to run and feel so free

Lase'em up and you will see
How on the level you can be

The pace is faster now
 as I round a bend

This exhilaration is mine to spend

The dynamics of life get simpler now

It's a real way you will see

When the runners are laced to me

My mind is free from trouble
Away they go as I move a long
The air expels them like a song

My lungs are real as real can be

For at this moment they are what sustain me

A soldiers gun a pirate's sabre

These running shoes they are my saviour

For with them I traverse the miles

Sorting things out and leaving the piles
