The Run

We started off together,

At the starting line.

We stayed side by side

To seize the day.


The path gets narrower

And it’s harder for us to share it.

You have always been faster

So you ran ahead of me.


I followed your trail.

I kept watching your back.

I saw how the winds swept up your feet

And how the light shines on you.


In a matter of seconds,

Your back gets smaller and smaller.

In a matter of time,

You are out of my sight.


I stopped.


Stop wanting to run faster

Stop wanting to catch up to you

Stop wishing to run with you.



You and I

At first, it seems like we have the same runway.

Right now,

I just don’t think it’s the same.
