“Running Scenarios;” a poem

I been running all my life.

But only just broke in my sneakers.

Taking on challenges,

Yet fleeing from chaos.

Protecting my peace,

Yet weakening my resilience.

Am I retreating before the storm hits?

Or quitting before it calms?

Should I trust my forethought?

Or regret my hindsight?

I am stuck on the fence,

Comparing lawns, counting flowers,

Gauging the temperature,

Forgetting that God is on either side I choose.


A poem written January 6, 2018.

Thanks for joining me me 😘
