Treasure Island

Run


I'm never stopping
RUN!
My heart is like a drum
RUN!
My feet pump with energy
RUN!
Rapacious
RUN!
Ultimate
RUN!
Near
run

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired by a birth defect I have. It applies pressure on my heart and lungs, making it hard to breath. Lots of people say, 'that doesn't sound too bad' well, muscles need oxygen to function. and breathing supplies oxygen. this results in an athletic disadvantage, but because I'm only eleven, my birth defect doesn't excuse me from PE. Therefore, i wrote this poem to symbolize the amount of effort into a simple jog across the vast playground.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
