The Run

Poised stretched and ready

The gun sounds as the dam breaks

Mighty river flows


Counting breaths for pace

One foot follows another

Miles accumulate


Every step I take

Creates a new horizon

Of great potential


Slow trickles of sweat

Erode yesterday’s tension

Lost in this moment


Running through the pain

Training forged  tenacity

To conquer myself


Regardless of fear

I believe therefore I can

And will persevere


One more finish line

Brings me closer to new goals

Not yet realized
