Run

May 1, 2008
By Mattie Rodrigue, Chandler, AZ

Muscles aching
Sweat dripping
Heaving chest
Burning lungs
Arms pumping
Leave it behind, escape
Nothing too fast, nothing too far,
Pounding steps against cold pavement, beating a sweetly mind-numbing rythmn
Into a troubled head
Leave it all behind
Run and sweat and pump and burn until its gone, all gone
Then Stop.
