If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything

I don't know if it's just the air.
Or maybe the music...
Something in me just wants to
My heart hurts but
my legs don't
My face is sweaty but
My body is cold.
I've run on all these roads before
I don't want to run anymore...
And yet
I want to run some more.
I'm running in circles.
I'm running in circles
Down roads I've walked before. Down
streets I've seen before, with cars
That all look the same.
I'm running in circles.
I need to Run somewhere I haven't
Ran before.
I need to Be somewhere I haven't
Been before.
Somewhere that doesn't look like
all these Circles.

The author's comments:
I ran for about an hour for no apparent reason, in the rain and cold, listening to a album my friend gave me, and I thought why was I running. And it just reminded me of the movie Forest Gump
