Marathon


Marathon

At first I ran

to escape your thoughts
foolishly thinking
I could outrun them
But no matter
how far I went
or how many different
routes I took
you were always there
at the end
waiting to repossess
my mind

I still run
Though I no longer
hope to escape
Now I use the thoughts
I once ran from
as fuel
to help me go further

One day
I will run a marathon
