Volition

Volition – Day 2…

Psalm 62
I listen as I run
If you listen to it, you hear
desire
beginning in the center
‘For God alone my soul waits in silence’..it begins
I wait tuning out the sound and force of my feet
running
I wait
turning my thoughts
Turn them
Drive them as a car is driven
Can desire be forfeited?
Emotion upended?
‘For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence’…
Running
steadying my breath
ignoring my sweat
I can turn them
with the same volition
I use to motor my legs
my self
throwing my shoulders back
centered
as on my God alone,
running…my soul,
I wait..
