Blind

These eyes
cannot see
the path
ahead.
Ears, deafened-
cannot discern;
my soul

Slope scaled;
battered, bruised
battle scarred
branches pruned;
summit bound-
tattered trail
marks, this
narrow path

hewn- trials

straight ways,
Steadfast-
stepping; one,

Striding; one,
two, three-
Sprinting; bounding
barriers, setting
pace-
Gonna win,
this
race.

Marathon

This
heap, lying
at your feet
exhausted,
is me-
running
to you.
Tears puddling
marbled floor,
pain wracked
strides, grace
filled, pressing-
gasping, into
breathless
victory.
