I'd rather be hated for who i am, than loved for who I'm not~Anonymous

No individual has any right to come into and out of this world without leaving distinct and legit reasons for having passed through.~Anonymous

Thump thump
Thump thump
My heartbeat matches
the souls of my feet
hitting the ground
as I run through
this twilight
and I feel so alive
as the blood pulses
throughout my veins
matching my moods
my thoughts
my life
always running
sucking in air like a
fish out of water
the pulse in my head
the blood in my veins
they race with my thoughts
they calm me again
I have no destination
or a map to lead me home
what direction is home?
I don't know.
I’m just running to calm
everything around me
to keep everything at bay
to remain sane.
I’m running from my stressors
from the yelling
from the love and pain
from all the disappointment.
I’m running away
feeling this pulse
coarse through my veins
feeling as though I’ll be fine
it brings me freedom
for just a little while

Running is a way i handle stress and what i do when i'm mad. This poem isn't planned out. it has no rythm to it. i just started writing and let it go from there. I just came from running outside, so that's what brought this poem's inspiration.
