Just To Be Walking

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sometimes,
In the morning when it rains.
The Sun shines,
And I forget what aches and pains.
Sometimes,
In the morning when it rains.
I go outside not to get wet.
But start walking.

Sometimes,
When I feel stuck in a rut.
In my mind,
I try not to get messed up.
And at those times,
I don't think about that stuff.
So I got outside,
Talking to myself and walking.

Sometimes,
In the morning when it rains.
The Sun shines,
And I forget what aches and pains.
Sometimes,
In the morning when it rains.
I go outside not to get wet.
But start walking.

Sometimes,
When I get those aches and pains,
Knowing they may come from brain strain...
Whether or not in the rain,
Just to be walking.
