Took a picture of your runnin' feet
And I was surprised by what I saw
Must have been running for years
Cracked and bleeding
Sleeping on park benches
And surviving on hope alone
Must have been running for that

I think this is up there with the best poems I've done. To me, it kind of sums up one boys courage and determination into a few lines.

Nice! I definitely agree that this is a great one, and can see the courage and hardship that the runner must have gone through. Great job!
