Sand pushing down and out with each step
Spit out sand and grit and stumble back upright
Colored sky but no sun yet
Roaring waves eating away at the rock to my side
Keep running, just keep running
A stitch in my side, gasping for air
Sweat starts to trickle down my face
Have to keep running, no pause, no backward glance
Keep stumbling forward and waiting for the sun to rise above the waters,
Keep moving, every step taking me away from what I want.
Trip and catch the palm of my hand on a rock
Watch for the sun and ocean birds and a new town far out in the distance.
Just keep watching the new come in and engulf me. Just keep waiting to forget the hopes that dare to build.
