Finish Line This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
    Shadows of competitors on the ground

Adrenaline pumping through my veins

My heart beats faster

The gun fires ... BANG!

Shadows reach for my soul

Lanes all come together ...

Like a twisted maze to the finish line

Acceleration

Speed and agility of a cheetah

Muffled sounds off to the side

Turning the corner

Driven by the surge of determination

Muscles tire

Arms and legs move in unison

Focus

Concentrate

Don't look back

Soaring

Like an eagle with wings

Push

Faster, faster

Line getting closer

Still being chased

Accelerate

Running over the line

Finishing my quest to be the best

The shadows still following behind ...
