Run with the past behind you, away from her arms and his smile.
Let go of the hide and seek tree.
Ignore the summer sand in your shoes.
Drop the plastic guns and painted horses.
The laughter and the dreams.
Run towards the future with breath burning in your lungs, vision blurred from the speed as your heart beats in time with your feet against the ground.
For your first kiss, broken heart and unspoken apology.
Run with your hand outstretched, ready to grasp the credit cards and overdrafts.
Keep on going and gain momentum.
Fly towards your mortgage, shiny car and surround sound family.
Dont get caught up in the friction of every day existence.
Faster now, youre nearly there.
Take nothing with you; run weightless towards your evensong and requiem.
Dont you dare stop.
Not even for a moment.
Living will only slow you down.
