 Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me

I Long To Run

When pressures are too great
When problems loom large
When the walls are closing in
    I long to run....

When I fail my children
When I fail myself
When I feel hopeless without direction
    I long to run....

When all reason seems lost to me
When I feel alone and isolated
When I feel nothing matters
    I long to run....

When people judge quickly without thought
When they show ignorance without shame
When they turn a cold shoulder without compassion
    I long to run....

When they say try harder
When they say get over it
When they say snap out of it
    I long to run....

When I spend more time in the dark than the light
When I don't want to face the world
When I would rather hide than be seen
    I long to run....

When I think of my children
When I feel the love that surrounds me
When I realize I need and am needed
    I forget how to run.....
