I’m not much of an athlete

But right now I feel that I can run and run and not stop

At such speed, away from all the stresses

That my blood will rush and my ears will pop


I would like to run to the sea

Dive right in and swim away

Until the land is a distant memory

Until the dawning of another day


A lungful of air

A place to regulate my breathing

Arms scything through foamy water

Until the day is receding


And maybe tomorrow will be better

I’ll stay and fight and not give in

I just need some distance to regroup

And take a deep breath

Besides, I cannot swim
