Poem About Running

There are a few things I do to clear my head or relieve stress, and running is one of them. The last time I went out for a run in the neighborhood, I remember thinking, "Wow, I feel so alive." That thought inspired me, and I decided to express that emotion through poetry. Hope you enjoy!

When my thoughts are too heavy,
My feelings too numb,
When my heart is unsteady,
And the tears start to come,

I put on my running shoes.
Tonight I can't hide.
I pace myself, breathing,
Letting go with every stride.

The melody of my footsteps,
The rhythm of my breaths,
Have synchronized into nothing;
A calm stillness inside my head.

I'm light as a feather.
I let myself fly.
The world is a blur, but tonight
... I'm alive.
