Success – A Poem

success and happiness - cartoonRunning, running
Ideas, thoughts, motion,
Faster, heart pounding
String in hands
Holding, tightly.
My vision, ever hastens
Up, up, mind racing
My sight heightens.
Beyond, the sun’s last ray
Red drops, bleeding
Betray my aching fingers.
My heart, pounding harder
I won’t let go, I won’t let go.
Hope, the stars’ first light
On the horizon, there!
I finally see it
Fear behind me
On either side
Running, running
Ever faster, for the wind
Lifting my hope, higher,
Higher, into the sky.
