Never Fast Enough

You are ahead
Never waiting
Or letting me catch up

I’m always behind you
Running to catch you but
I never do

I run as fast as I can
I endure the pain for you
But you don’t wait

You just go on and on
Ahead of us all
Ahead of me

There was a time
A time when I was on your heels
Just barley behind

But it’s changed now
Now I sprint
Just to keep you on the horizon

I like the then I hate the now
Why have you run so fast?
So fast away from me?
