The Run

The hardest thing for any runner to do...
Reach the finish line, then pass on through,
To trace the same route, keep running on,
In order to complete the marathon.

It's a battle between the body and mind,
To keep going when you see the finish line.
When fatigue and exhaustion are your best friends,
It's tough to not let your body win.

The mind is what tends to get you through,
When the body has no more to give to you.
When your legs are saying it can't be done,
You mind takes control and completes the run.

True for runners and non runners as well,
We all go through times of personal hell,
When it's just too much and we want to quit,
But our minds won't let us even think of it.

When the mind is burdened, the body can barely move. When the mind becomes free? Imagine then what becomes sluggish in nature.
