getting stronger

getting stronger
staying well
improving times
these things tell
me the progress
that I actually make
and hope to improve-
just what will it take
to actually compete
to find a place
in one of the top ranks
in a future race

giving up

why is each day
so very hard

seems like it will
never ease up

every moment goes by
leaving me charred

and I can only think
about giving up

thing of the past

A thing of the past
Where did it go?
I thought it would last
Now I just don't know

How could it change
When it meant so much
Why such a range
Why lost touch?

Where has it gone?
Is it still there?
Will it ever dawn
and be reborn here?

I need a nap

never enough rest
can never feel my best
lately my only request
is some energy, some zest
my nearly daily quest-
a nap before my head hits my chest
