314 – Rough trail

Trying,
Failing,
Trying
Falling.

Scrapes and bruises,
Taste the blood,
Wipe the dirt.

Trying,
Stumbling,
Trying,
Fumbling.

Strained limbs,
Aching muscles,
Breathe the sweat.

Trying,
Tripping,
Trying,
Running.

A subtle smile,
Just that…

Not a master,
But a small step
Closer.
