Short-Distance Runner - Poem by Jan Hauck
Oh there, the engine starts again,
This rush, this push of excitation.
Transcending (trying!) as a man,
The mind a spark of agitation.
Just then, a few lines down the track,
The rush seems slowly to descend,
And I must stop, yet can't go back,
I rest, the energy is spent.
Awake, don't stop, invigorate,
The poem must not be discarded,
And may the words appear quite late,
They're always very well regarded.
