I Can Do This

My feet hit the ground,
Sweat trickles down my spine.

I can't stop.
I will do this.
I'll be fine.

I have shortness of breath,
The world is spinning before my eyes.
I can do this.
I will do this before I die.

I've come this far,
I can't quit now.

Transitioning into better health,
I keep running.
I'm doing this for myself.

I fight with myself.
I push a little harder.
I won't quit, I'll be stronger.
I am doing this now.
