today feels like a marathon
being swept up with the
of the crowd.
today feels like a mountain climb
pulling myself over that next boulder
grasping for the crack in the rock
to help boost my tired muscles.
today feels like a track meet
remember going from one activity to another
some of them were great and some were dreaded
but away you went
with the group,
doing your best, or not so best
to collect the ribbon at the end.
that's what today feels like.
a whole lot of busy.
a whole lot of exercise.
a whole lot of racing.
i am looking for the finish line
to show up now pretty quick.
(and i don't even want the ribbon)
i would be very happy to just put my feet up.
