“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Tough As Nails

IMG_1719It was a brisk morning, a hard morning
I woke up at six, let my baby sleep a little longer
Eggs and toast my fuel, double layers my warmth

We made it out, eventually
Just a dirty diaper or two, just a tear or two
Just a typical morning, just a jog

We made it to the hill, not so much a mountain
I worried about mud, I was right
The ten miles became nearly eleven and a half, how dare they

I ran comfortably, at first
Was up in front, felt like a speed demon
Two caught up with me, way too soon

But I ran well, felt the burn on the uphill
Tripped a little, took some foliage with me
And made it third overall, first woman

It feels good to race, sometimes
Especially when free massages. free beer
Meet you at the finish line

I Fell

what are you doing? you ask, you ask

i’m explaining, only explaining, how it happened

is that blood? where’s it from?

from my heart, my mind replies

in your face, i can tell that you heard it

ignoring what you know, i speak, i speak

i fell, see the dirt? you don’t believe it

look, i’m not a fool, so you say, so you say

if so, i could use a little faith in me

go ahead and  cry, all your tears for me

until your eyes are parched and see mirages

you’d save a lot of heartache if you listened

but no, you will not do it, why? why?

you know why, you say, i can’t believe a lie

because, you didn’t fall

someone pushed you
