Run Faster

runner

Dream a dream of words and sleep,

live a life of hope and deeds.

Pray you won’t waste another day,

Waiting for the grey to fade.

Rise today and raise your wings,

To your fears I say you scream:

This world is mean, at times obscene, at times I seek a sign to see.

I say I say I say to you, the truth of fear is it’s untrue.

There is no thing you cannot do, no dream that can’t be made real too.

No reason to lie to yourself and say “I can’t” or “Well I fell.”

For when we struggle we feel some pain, and in that pain we don’t see gain.

But if you rise and rise again, push through the pain and play pretend –

If you run when you can’t see – you’ll finish first, then believe me.

  1. Hello, hello Thomas M. Watt,

    I am so happy I found you and your awesome blog today! Happily following. 😉

    And P.S. I love this poem – gorgeous. Lifted me up just when I needed it (don’t you love when that happens?).

    Blessings and light, always,

    Allison
