The Finish Line


In response to the Daily Post’s “Marathon”

The Marathon in my mind,

engrossed me, oblivious of time passing,

It captured my soul, never letting it escape until,

I crossed the finish line.

The Marathon in my mind,

hoarding my concentration, energy, and life,

overtaking and controlling my senses until,

I cross the finish line.

The Marathon in my mind,

will direct me to places I don’t know,

and will show me the path which I am not sure to take,

I am going to cross the finish line.
