Every Picture Tells A Story: “The Mad Dash”

“The Mad Dash”

Ding Dong the dream is dead.

Your body awakes in a zombie state as you head for the showers,

Like coach used to say during the “glory days.”

Where has it gone?

Your face is no longer there,

Just a pair of running shoes where a head used to be.

Always running

Where your mind used to wonder.

Always running

When you used to believe.

Always running.

And as for your body….

 Another chapter into the dark abyss of what used to be.

It’s too late.

You’ve caught it and ran.

The Mad Dash.

And the only time you can recognize yourself,

Is when the sun is at your back.

A mere shadow.
