10 Again

And so I ran Not in fear or haste But for fun You couldn’t stop me Too free to just walk Too happy to stroll Young enough to not care So I ran… I ran smiling Laughing inside Leaning fwd Throwing my head back Pumping my arms Leaping for a handful of leaves I had opened a door Like jumping off that cliff into the cold river water Butterflies, short of breath Nerves churning before the leap Surfacing in the water triumphant and full of joy That momentary weightlessness Almost flying I was 10 And had just kissed a girl
