For A Second

March 1, 2008
By Brittany Wright, Boca Raton, FL

Splat
My shoes slapping the ground
Thrusting forward
Nothing could ever stop me
Even for a second.

Splat
My breath is short and cold
Pacing myself
Each step a new feeling
But only for a second.

Splat
My body wants to quit
Losing energy
But my heart will never
Not even for a second.

Running
Running everywhere
But nowhere
Through the elements
Nothing will ever stop me
Not for a second.
