Life

i did start
slow and steady
remembering dad
who said
slow and steady win the race.......
minutes aged in to hours
my pace became fast
could hear the heart beat
and felt the pulse rate
burned all the calories.
15 km@ 7 km per hour
dial told me the pace.
thirsty and tired
came the run to halt.
panging, sweating
moving nowhere
reaching nowhere
i finished the run
where i started it.

i was on tread mill.

JUST LIFE LIKE.

    At least you were back to where you started which is better than being six steps back! Nice piece brother, and is real - does happen sometimes that is why there's always a next time to look forward to..10

    The evolution doesn't stop there, but moving in phases, follows time.

    wow. one word i have for you.
    you offered a new insight to life, showing how life could be a cycle whereby we end where we started from hence the absurdity and meaninglessness. nice but do look on the bright side. (:
