I’ve been feeling so restless lately,
Like I want to take flight.
Here I go, running away,
When I really should stay and fight.
Fleet feet beg to be running,
and thighs are begging for pain.
Knees, screaming for weakness,
and toes that are yearning
to feel pavement
through rubber soled shoes.
An ass that protests all the sitting
and a brain that’s wandering away.
Away, away
and out to the street
where my body is yearning to be.
