You Have To Run - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

You have to run and run
And run and run till
You reach there,
But where to go
And when to reach,
I do not know
And I cannot tell you,
The place and its address.

Currently, I am here with you,
I know you are the ultimate truth.
Currently you are here with me,
But I do not know
You shall be there tommorrow.
Your running will show your glow.

    I never run. I have walked for miles each day to keep fit but run? no. I am now 85 and still, with my 81 yr old wife
    Perhaps it is because I have lived in Canada with no fear or oppression all my life. So now I ask you, why do you think you must run? Is it political? Poetry is my entertainment. I am retired and a caricaturist and cartoonist as well as an unpublished limericist, other than computer. I should like to hear more from you to understand the urgency of your poem.
