440 – Creed

The run,
The thrill,
The hunt,
The chase.

Right foot,
Breathe in.
Left foot,
Breathe out.

Steady pace
In the face of death.
Just one first step,
Then many more.

Not all pain
Is significant,
Nor every wound
A threat.

How strong is strong?
How fast is fast?
How far is far?
How hard is hard?

Always sufficient,
But never quite enough.
