Glimmer: Motivation

A runner in a grand hall © Jason Goodger

“Motivation”

It is a race

With no one else

I hate my pace

I’m too slow

I must go

FASTER

I push, my mind

It realizes

I can’t be kind

My body

Will comply

“Yes, master”

There is the line

I see my goal

I’m almost there

Can’t quit now

Shoulders low

GO FASTER

"The Runner" by Jason Goodger
