Learning to Stand

Jul 6, 2010
I know how to run
running in the middle of the night on a deserted beach to destinations unknown.

I know how to run
until I am sweaty, exhausted and unable to do myself further harm

I know how to walk away
away from what is hurting with strength in my stride towards that which feels better,

but I do not know how to stand still

and when I find a ground on which my feet can rest
and when I find a patch of land that doesn't make me want to sprint
and when I find peace in my footing

then i will no longer be afraid to stand on my own.
