Racing only with a darkness

Racing with something that refuses to be caught

and yet I didn't think

I only thought

If I can beat this

I am better then what I am

If I can win I am not who I have been

If I avoid defeat

I;ve changed from within

I'll never again be beat

I look and race

with the ground

A darkness so immanent but waiting

A darkness so profound

I race with my shadow

in the brightest moment of the day

To change only one thing

To change my own way

of living

I meet my own shadow

at the crack of dawn

one cold breath of air

and we both know

who's won

my heart beats

beneath my feet

a flower sprouts

and I walk away without a shadow of a doubt
