Runner’s Paradox

June 5, 2020

Fangs dripping of bigotry hasten to attack human black deer. Such is a line in the work of this African American psychiatrist.

Strike with a gentle force to release the tangled web of ruminations.
Stimulate atrophied muscles with rhythmic steps of gratitude.
Shine in an ageless concrete that invites heavenly exploration.
Run, Run, Run!

Smell the refreshing aroma of soft winds gliding the human deer.
Smile at faithful stars that guide creativity and store personal best.
Speak to replete lungs that beckon tranquility for the journey.
Run, Run, Run!

Fangs dripping of bigotry hasten to attack human black deer.
Eyes from afar filled with gangrenous material halt the once swift glider.
Hearts of infirmity congregate to infect the black dove.
Bang, Bang, Bang!
