Let Me Run My Race Alone

You cannot tell Me 
not to run
just because My shoelace is undone.

Do You not remember
that the time We rode Our bikes
Together,
it was My helmet You borrowed?

Tell Me not Your concerns
when You care not of Mine.

For it is too late now,
the race has begun

and I am almost finished.

    I feel such a sadness reading this, there is a hurt that makes it necessary to run alone. Enjoyed this in a sad way.

    You're right! Sometimes you just don't realise that you're running alone, until someone ties to pull you back. Glad you enjoyed it :)
