Running - Poem by Modupeola Williams

Contracting and relaxing
muscles over muscle glide
Faster and faster
my feet and the earth colide
Moving ahead the wind flows through my hair
The sound of onlookers a loud blur in my ear
Pulsing and pulsing
the blood in my veins
Focus intense as monsoon rains
For a second i feel so wild and free
Like a ship upon the open sea
That high, the energy kicks into gear
Closer and closer
the end draws near
But for a second i wish i could disappear
So that like the wind i would blow right through
And stop, i would never have to
