Just Another Runner

Regina Puckett


As the world slowly turns

We follow our patterns

Each day we begin anew

Following it all the way through

We wash, brush, eat and then run

Often missing out on all the fun

Jumping right into the noisy fray

As if this was just another day

But if it was your last one

What then would get done

Would hug your love ones tight

Clinging to them with all your might

Would you laugh, run and play

What words would you finally say

What memories will you leave behind

Will you be a piece of someone’s mind

A part of them they refuse to let go

Someone they were proud to know

Will you leave the world a better place

Or just another runner in the race
