Aiming

I am trying to run –

Faster than the raindrops

I am hoping to love –

Brighter than the sun

I am aiming to live –

Lighter than the heavens

Deeper than the ocean

Calmer than the moon

I am hoping to be –

Stronger than the bedrock

I am aiming to see –

Different points of view

I am trying to move –

Faster than the waves

Lighter than the leaves

Swifter than the wind

But sometimes – just sometimes 

The sadness creeps up

But sometimes – just sometimes 

The anger sets in

But sometimes – just sometimes

The weight pulls me down

The grief overwhelms

The darkness begins….
