I am running so I don't feel as lost.
Into whirlwinds and mountains
God rests his hands somewhere
Shoulders do not touch here.
I am running deeper and harder
Faster than my feet can carry
I am not as light as I though I was
And my heart is heavy with burdens
To forget that I was once
I am unmoved by these events
And though I could shed a thousand
Tears, my cheeks remain dry
And the desert surrounds my eyes
I can see the wind blowing
I can taste the memories
Floating gently around my fingertips.
I want to remember this moment
Catching my breath
My life line is not long enough on my palms and it's unfair
So I am running to savor these moments
Stretching my soul across plains
Hugging the world with both arms.
Till I see that these moutains
Are not as still as I thought they were.
See you tomorrow, Johannesburg!
