To Run
~a prayer for Boston by Scott Poole
 
To run
is to rise above the weak spirit
is to take on pain
is to push pain in the chest
with both palms
 
stumbling over garbage,
gravel, fragments of life,
 
is to say I will take you
on in the street.
Every breath of mine
is a battering ram,
 
shoving, crushing,
swinging a hammer of air.
 
I am a body of fast moving blood
inhaling you
taking you in like a tank.
I will consume your hate.
 
I will run straight into you
as if you were a finish line of joy,
picking up the fallen along the way
and you will never stop me,
you will never
stop me.
