To Go the Extra Mile

Faster, quicker, longer,

I ran.

I ran to fight the weakness, the fear, the pain.

The further I went, the better it felt.

The weakness, the fear, the pain,

They left.

In entered strength, clarity, and freedom.

Strength to take those extra steps,

Clarity to see that life was okay,

Freedom to let go of the worries that were never mine.
