It starts raining

But I keep running.

Don't get me wrong –

I like the rain.

It makes my hair curly

And it feels good

On my hot skin.

Running endlessly

The ground is muddy

I'm soaking wet

But I'm still feeling fine

I don't care

Because I run to get

All the stress of life

Out of my system,

To leave it behind.

And so I run

Despite rain and cold

Even if I'm just running

To run away.
