Who Is She? - Poem by Alyssa Lippi

She can't feel her legs
, , anymore, ,
She knows they're moving
as fast as they can
after running for so long

But running for what?

To something?

Away from something?

She doesn't know.
She can't remember the reason that once motivated her
That made her push
That made her fight
That made her... her.

There used to be this something.
, , that defined her, ,

And she got so used to running
running down the endless road

That the reason now eludes her.

And she cries.
Bc it was important.
It had to be. Right?
It defined her.

But now that that reason is lost
Who is she ?

    She is at rest after her pace of life declared..its meaning. And by an authorized design her place in life dared. She did it her way. And thank God for that. Now a place in the sun to pray is hers to run out the rest of her graceful night and day. (Report) Reply

    Oh dear, not the run defined her but the Will! the power to go on, even without a reason, she is a lovely person, strong, she'll win all battles with others or herself, she is a champions material made of! 10 (Report) Reply
