A step,
After another…

The wind,
Howls past your ears;
The world,
Races past your eyes;
Your heart,
Beats faster than your legs;
Your mouth,
Opens to let your strength out;
Your soul,
Screams for a release;
Your fears,
Singing in your mind;
Your battles,
Raging in your thoughts;
Your demons,
Catching up with you;
Your will,
Dying by the seconds;
Your hope,
Lagging rapidly behind;
Your legs,
Falling tired and failing…

Ahead,
Love awaits…at Peace’s Haven;
Ready,
With an army at His back;
Urging,
You to come running into His arms;
Soothing,
While His army fight your battles;
Carrying,
You on its wings to the palace of Rest;
Desiring,
You to stop running;
Saying,
Your race is over.
4:17pm; Aug. 19.
Home, Ibadan.
