Fearful feet, stopped by notes

In my eyes
I see fear
so I run

In my feet
I feel the urge to stop, overwhelming
so I stand still
listening to my voice

It tells me to try something new.
It tells me it is not about running.
Nor about the destination I am running to.

It is about what happens when I am standing still

What am I scared of?
What do I see I do not bear seeing?
What do I wish to hide running?
Why can’t I just stand standing?

It is time to try something new.
It is time to stand still.
It is time to see what happens.
… and how I feel then.

It is time. Stand. Still.

One thought on “Fearful feet, stopped by notes”

  1. Aus deinem Gedicht kann ich viel für mich mitnehmen. Vor allem, weil mir rennen leichter fällt als stillzustehen und ich manchmal auch mehr auf die leise Stimme in mir hören sollte. Ich hoffe du kannst es genießen, stehenzubleiben. 🙂
