Dexterity - Poem by Tyler Smith

The gun fires,
I’m running fast,
The echo of the shot
Rings in my ears
But it is soon drowned
In the throbs of
My pounding heart
It seems like eternity
But in real reality
Minute minutes had passed.
There it is! My final
Destination within reach
Of my sore legs
Keep moving, never stopping.
I stumbled across the threshold,
My breathing wild.
I am done,
Until my next race.
