The Run Begins

A poem a week makes the endorphins peak.

Lordy, Lordy and glory be

Better hang on, cos change is acoming

And its gonna be amazing!

Outta my way, you plodders.

Stiffle the moans and smother what ifs.

Come on in – transformation.

Roll over you oldies, but stay in line,

Make room for the littl’ ones,

The next generation.

It ain’t gonna be alright….

It’s gonna be amazing,

I started running 16 years ago to help manage anxiety and depression and found the endorphins helped me in another write my sermons for Sunday.... and then inspiration came for poetry. A Christmas present 2017 was a book by Jo Bell, challenging the reader to write a poem a week for a year. This blog showcases these and other poems composed on the run.
