In Remembrance

The gunshots faintly echo in my ears.

My punched lip is still tender.

I remember it well.

My hands are rough from the bitter wild.

My head has a dull ache from the lie hangover.

I remember it well.

My heart still beats erratically from the overdose on fear.

I remember it well.

Very well.

2013 was traumatic and left marks that have not yet faded.

But along with the scars came unexpected strength.

Sudden focus.

Unanticipated faith.

So I remember it well.

And will continue to run.

With my crown on my head.

And the King helping me along.

I remember it well

And will continue to run

With purpose

in every single step.

-Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.
