599 – Coat

Left, right,
Rhythmic splashing.
Left, right,
Rhythmic steps.

Rain keeps falling.
Legs keep moving.
Heart keeps beating.
Life stands still.

Left, right.
Steady breathing.
Left, right,
Thinking clearly.

Shame and anguish,
Melt away.
Doubt and fear,
Discarded skins.

Left, right,
Feeling centered.
Left, right,
Feeling whole.

The deep joy
Of simply running,
A soothing coat
For a lost soul.

Left, right,
Running happy.
Left, right,
Running free.

Rain keeps falling.
Feet keep splashing.
Heart keeps dreaming.
Life goes on.
