Poem: The Run

I miss the feeling of my body soaring along,

With the push of my feet,

I once could outrun,

Even slow cars,

Now my stomach is tight,

Now there’s a slight fog,

To my thoughts,

Not unclouded by the exercise.

My waistline slides forward,

And that’s another stress,

I want to just,

Go and run,

Go forth and make my muscles work,

And I will—

I just need to do it when no one is home,

When I am alone,

And not late at night,

When everyone needs to sleep tight,

And it’s not safe to sprint along,

In the nighttime wind.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
