I run,
chasing feelings
I thought out of my grasp.
Is it possible I was wrong?

I speed,
racing the world
for a prize I covet.
Is it possible I will win?

I fall,
stumbling on
my own feet, my own words.
It is possible I’m not hurt?

I try,
lifting myself
dusting off, wiping tears.
Is it possible I’ll catch up?

I yield,
admit defeat
another loss for me.
Is it possible I was right?

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I like the pattern. You manage to convey an entire range of emotions in a few short verses. The content, as you might imagine, has me worrying… ❤

    There is no such thing as “catching up”. Any attempt to do so has already failed. There is only the path we choose for what we need, and being comfortable with those choices. Hugs x

    Wow, it’s a powerful piece that speaks volumes. “I run chasing feelings, I thought out of my grasp” It’s like she has ten but they’re just a finger tips away! I can feel this one. She’s tired but she keep running, keeps trying because they’re RIGHT THERE but they feel so far gone. Awesome work, stunning!
