Forever Running

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

 

Step by step

Minute by minute

Mile by Mile

Hour by Hour

 

But still

 

I’m in the same place

I started.

 

All I hear are the dreaded words,

“On Your Left”

From the runners going before me.

 

I’ve gone nowhere,

No progress has been made

 

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

 

I’m tired

I’m angry

I’m giving up

 

Then a strong hand reaches for mine,

A voice says,

Jazzmin,

step down.

 

I look up into the kind eyes

Take his hand,

Step down.

 

The voice says

Start running, step by step now

 

I begin again

 

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

Step, step, step, step

 

But he never leaves my side.

He holds my hand

He runs with me.

 

Step by step

Minute by minute

Mile by Mile

Hour by Hour

 

I realize what he’s done for me

He helped me step down from the treadmill of life.

Where I was

Forever running

But losing the race

Were it not for grace

One thought on “Forever Running

  1. Funny I logged on to check out your site while walking on the treadmill and this is the first thing I read. I hope young people will grasp the truth of letting go of chasing after the stuff this world throws at you and allow God to lead you towards His dreams for you!
