The stars are visible even at dawn.
I breathe the scents of morning dew,
stretch my arms wide open.
My red trainers are worn-out
but a new smile gleams on my face.
Forget the race of life, I run at my own pace.
I kick the pain away
like an empty can.
The breeze strokes my cheeks
My lungs expand…
I listen to the chirping of sparrows,
forget the static noise in my earphones.
I let my heartbeat slow down
under the graceful gliding of petals
from a cherry blossom tree.
Soon I feel the sunlight on my back,
your tap on my shoulder.
