NOT GIVE UP
The Second wind
Run and yet not weary
Walking and not feint
One more day
One more night
Eat
Sleep
Awake
Repeat
One more day
One more night
Eat Sleep Awake
Repeat...

Sight Untamed
Paying the price for a thoughtful mind
Gets overwhelming at times
Leaving all the vital parts 
Felling separate
Holding by a thread
Tapping into second wind
Pulling from endeavors bin
Taking time to mend
Agony thralled grin
Calling God all the way 
That he performs 
Faith stay
End still at steak...

          Yes, you  can!


Climb the mountain, no matter
how treacherous and steep!
Keep your eye on the lofty prize, 
far, far above your eyes.

It's when you are most exhausted,
that the second wind fills your lungs.
Negative thoughts seem heavier than 
iron rungs.

But you will most assuredly achieve.
You simply must.....believe!

the gun shoots
runners off
one step two step
running with the stride like no other
it passes the 10k mark
my mind is daft
my body chaffed and burnt
at 13 miles and I get a second wind
I am indulging in what I do
fatigue is not an option,
20th mile I'm sore and wreaked
with my conscience I endure
finally, I can see the finish
I cross the line and collapse
that's me sorted
my time here is done...

Autumn Path
Two trails meeting
in lush forest gloom.

You trekked one,
I the other.
Our journeys long.

You weary of physical
and emotional
pain.
I the latter.

Eyes locked in gaze,
knowing each
of the other's
torment.

We grin
breathe in
the second wind.

Renewed thrill
of new possibilities.

Our trails merge.

Take my Hand,
kindred soul.

A new direction
we will travel
together
along one
Autumn path.
