Where did the starting line begin
and when is the finish line?
How much distance is there between failure and success
and why do I even run?
Do I ever stop running from things or toward things?
Do we drown when we stop?
Sometimes standing still is where it’s at
watching the elk on the trail
in the dark
or admiring the moon
If you keep running, there is always the possibility of something around the corner
Push yourself past limits
There have been times in my life when I said, “Don’t try too hard. Put your time in.”
But the best moments are when I go all out
this puts people on edge
because they can’t understand why
“You should go the speed limit.”
“But I’m a race car.”
“You never went this fast before.”
“There was traffic; now the road is clear.”
“What do you want to do, cause an accident or something?”
the trail is a test, a test of my strength
some may say that strength doesn’t matter
we’re just going to lose it
but feats of strength
it’s not about being strong
but about feeling strong
and I keep running on the trail
to test my limits
so I don’t have any.
