In the mist of the night,

I zoned to sleep.

An antelope, very fleet,

at tremendous speed

crashed through my body

into my heart

to ram and break

or carry away

those bad things breaking my heart.

 

It runs away

then comes back like a

magnet pulling and pushing.

The antelope travels up my bloodstream

to my brain, and it

rams and breaks

or carries away

those bad memories

breaking my brain.

 

It runs away

then comes back

like a magnet pulling and

pushing.

The antelope slides down

to my right foot, and it

rams and breaks

or carries away

those bad kicks

breaking my feet.

 

It never gets tired,

running around,

doing its job

to make me better.
