As this current journey
nears its completion,
am reminded of the runner
who must be trained
to quicken his pace
or risk loosing the race
The mind can be a funny
thing, often heeding a familiar
bell, rather than that one
which is needed.
When that runner sees what is called
“Home”, his mind will tell him that
it is time to slow down, the race
is “finished”, when it really isn’t.
So he must be trained to quash that
primal urge, and reach for another
spurt of energy that will take him
over and beyond that so-called

Notes: Image is another of my designs, colored and liked by others. But, I have
always known that it could be improved with a few changes. Changes I have
failed to create because of those other opinions. Just like that runner, I’ve fallen
to “good enough” rather than my best. This yearly Journey has shown me something
very important. I need to get back to writing poetry. the kind that I am good at.
