The joy of steps upon the earth

That carry my body over space

Speak to me of magic birth

A look into a happy face.

To move is to connect sometimes

When all connections seem so weak

To feel the pain and bliss of it

In a body, foot to peak.

The sometimes burn and sometimes high

The easy and the harder things

The cramp, the sore, the warming sun

The sweat, the light and all it brings.

I think too much and not enough

And running brings me back to me

I lose the screens and all the thoughts

And find my peaceful harmony.

    “The sweat, the light and all it brings”.

    Perfect iambic tetrameter is the source of the power of these lines along with parallel structure.
