In the Distance


I can see it

Far away in the

Distance it waits

And so I run

Run toward what sits

So far away

I don’t stop

Don’t slow down

I keep pushing

Faster and faster

One step after another

I don’t slow

Can’t slow

I can feel it

If I don’t get there soon

It will disappear

It will be gone

And it won’t come back

I won’t get

A second chance

So I keep going

I don’t give up

Because I can’t
