?

so many times

so many times

so many times

i ran, and ran, and ran.

then, i learned to run faster.

i outdid myself.

then, i looked at who i became —

amazed by my pace and ability.

then, i turned around

and saw… nothing.

then, i decided that maybe —

just maybe —

i should walk,

so i wouldn’t feel so alone.

then, i saw a tree —

an all-knowing tree —

that i could climb.

then, i thought this tree could

help me find… something.

this tree was so high that the ground below

was blind to the reality of its apex.

then, i realized i was afraid of heights.

and got stuck, looking for and waiting on… something.
