Running.. With Mind Planted Firmly in Place.. Or is it?
Is one truly getting away for peace of mind?
For time to connect with earth?
Ones loved ones?
Or IS ONE RUNNING?
Not as in a jog at 5:30 a.m. each morning.
As in running to get the best this.. the best that.. the first this.. the first that.
'Humble brag' rights?
'Photo Op' rights?
"I was the first one to do this or that..' rights?
"I hope so-and-so is watching.." rights?
"I wonder if 'X' will think this is okay.." rights?
With feet planted firmly on the ground.
First to do all accept Get It Together.
One can run..
.. but one cannot hide ones unresolved issues.
Simply adding to a ten car pile up with excessive thoughts of wanderlust..
.. while ones mind wanders in a lust of self pity..
.. only to be
.. by passport stamps,
and trinkets of places past.
Your mental house.
Is it in order?
Quit packing for get-a-way.
Start storing for san-i-ty.
Set yourself straight.
Your mind will appreciate.
Run only when needed.
Not for past heartache that preceded.
... to concentrated breaths,
... to a mind that's at rest.
