foot pain

a foot so sore
I wish would heal

I don't know when
the pain I'll no longer feel

getting inserts for my shoes
will that chase away my blues?

I don't know when
I'll be back to running again

but I am more than ready
to be rid of my daily pain

have you heard the
latest craze?

no longer sorting through
misunderstood maze.

now let your sarcasm
reign free

you can express it
most definitely

don't let the retort
lay unheeded

the new punctuation
is ready where needed

indeed when you are next
ready "to tear flesh"

your newest mark will make
sure words and message mesh!

looking ahead to college

meeting with a college guy
costs of higher ed are sky high
so to make the most we'll try
to help our first nestling to fly
don't know how we'll get by
and hard not to escape a sigh
but I know that before long my
oldest will be saying good bye
his first adventure is drawing nigh
time that he will start to apply
and ask what finances will supply
then it won't be long whereby
you will hear this mom's outcry

the right stuff?

trying to get well
and just not making it

seems like I fail
every chance I get

when getting back on the run
and not getting the ok

is absolutely no fun
and not at all the way

to train for a race
that's coming all too soon

I can't keep the pace
and I feel like it's all ruin

I want to do my best
but this time it's not enough

in this race I'll invest
and hope I'll have the right stuff
