Is Winning Everything?

little girl
running fast
down a gray and
rock path
all those eyes
looking at her
someone's eyes are missing
now all are a blur
other runners on her heels
now she wishes it wasn't real
theres the finish line
got to break it
doesn't know
if she can make it
wait what just happened
did she win
she knows she did
when she sees her mom's grin
the whole ride home
is completely quiet
mom's thinking of an excuse
but knows she won't buy it
why wasn't dad there
the little girl said
her mother responded by
just scratching her head

Kayla,
Great job. I can't believe that you wrote something like this at your age. I'll be showing (bragging about this to all of my friends at work.
Love,
Aunt Cindy

Kayla, This is a great peom and makes me a little sad. Thinking about all of the different events I would have missed while I was working shifts. I am glad I don't have to do that anymore. Keep up the GOOD work. Love, Dad
