I am rooted, I remain…but to rise roll n run /
I resist, I rest…yet restless I rustle n rush /
I am recluse, I am restricted…only to rove ride n race /
I resign, I am reigned…but I ramble reach n return /
I am restrained, I retire…yet raring roused n rampant.
I stand, I am still…but to sweep sway n swing /
I stay, I surrender…yet I speed sprint n spring /
I sit, I straddle…only to start stir n stride /
I snooze, I am static…but swift spirited n sprite /
I sleep, I settle…yet I sail slip n slide.
I am tied, I am timed…but to tread trend n travel /
I tremble, I tumble; yet I trip twist n twirl /
I am trapped, I am trounced; only to touch tour n turn /
I am torn, I am tranquil; but I try trek n trace /
I am tired, I am troubled; yet I tour transit n traverse.
