I realize why I’ve been running for so long,
Long passed my breathless lungs,
Miles further than my broken limbs would carry me.
I can’t stop, don’t stop, just carry on.
Alive, untouchable, invincible.
My beating heart and heavy breath, alone in the great wide world.
With blistered heals, and splintered shins.
The sun’s farewell on my shoulders,
The wild, open road at my feet.
