Each spike on my running shoes dogged into the grass as I ran.
Away from all the moments of pain
Hoping once I’m done the feeling of being overwhelmed would be over.
I run faster as the feeling of peace washes over me.
I fight back the feeling of giving up and push myself to the point of breaking.
And before my heart spikes any higher then possible.
I take a breath and get some water and cool down on my walk back to reality.
