A life spent running. abuse is the cause.
Leaving to escape slows. One foot
down, education no longer. Next foot down. A thumb up. Alaska awaits.
Frozen flourishing. Stop. Relationships with no prior training.
Down, down, down. Road rash that bites and burns. No one ever told me . . .
Running partners long gone. Constructing. No
definition, no foundation.
John Barleycorn, No-tell Motel, Joe Camel. Diamond Lil.
Stepped on a crack, with broken back
continue running. Free. Running. Free. Alone. Run into, run away from. Run
toward - the unknown. Damn. Memory of first running lessons - broken switch,
torn bible. Get the hell out of here. Stay the course, pray always, answers.
Where? Body ravaged, by failed races, still running.
Holding to hope is hopeless. Soleless, soulless, solace.
One foot down.
My daily bread.
Trespassers. Walking now, one foot at a time.
Lead me not into temptation.
No more. One friend.
Delivered from evil.
Lost. Loss. Race is over. No winners, only
For thine is the kingdom.
And the power.
