Run For Your Life - Poem by Carlos Gutierrez
Fear had rapidly poisoned my veins,
and as soon as we had started running, I prepared myself to fall behind;
I slowed my sprint to a jog in the frigid, bleak rain.
I looked ahead,
and I saw my kindred desperately, from danger escape.
At once, I looked behind,
yet the shadows betrayed no one.
I claimed for my sister in the obscure gloom of the night.
I immediately encountered anxiety in her brown, worried eyes,
and it only took me a fraction of a second,
to have her thoughts thoroughly identified.
She, as well, had diminished her pace.
We had just lost our father, and I knew that the possibility of her losing me,
was more than her fragile, shriveled heart could bear.
Yet, even in the naiveté of my youth,
I could reminisce and fill my heart with content.
My feet became poised for whatever malignant presence crawled at our heels,
and I embraced it with might.
