I feel alive when..


I feel alive when I’m running. 

At first 

I’m struggling to breathe. 

My feet,

slapping heavily on the pavement,

With each step. 

But then 

A peace comes. 

Breathing is easy. 

I feel like I’m flying, 

Soaring,

Like I can do anything. 

Like I can run forever. 

I concentrate on each footstep, 

Instead of my worries, 

Fears,

Anxieties. 

The cold air 

Burning my lungs 

With each breath. 

I know,

When the run is over

Real life

Will come back. 

But for now, 

I focus on putting one foot in front of the other.
