Run in the Forest

Running in the forest
In the dark of morning
Fresh dew everywhere
Shoes barely touching the ground

Animals scurry
Headsets with Spotify
I run for health
I run for pleasure

The city’s not here
No metro rumbles
No ubers chase fares
No people stare

In the distance
Right on time
The sun comes up
Everything changes color
All at once
Like magic

Am I flying
Is this real
A smile on my face
I run in the forest
