Fire Runner - Poem

gifted and instrumental in my success
you run further and I can't see your
teaching me to run in infinite directions
you slow down so that I can see you

I run with regression
afraid to take another course
in an effort to please,
I slow down so that I won't pass you

challenges to power often dampen spirits
and I need to pass you now.
leveling this field is not for play
run with and not through the wind
