Struggling from behind, no breath to move forward
She ran with all her might
Afraid to lose the chance of winning the golden award
She felt like she was being pulled down, like she was armoured
She wasn’t leaving the weeks of training all go down the drain,
No, she was going to get up, sunshine or rain
Her legs almost buckled and almost went from underneath her
Yet she told herself that no one could be a leader.
Her positive attitude helped her strive for the finish line,
with a record of five hours in time
The marathon was over, she was in for the win
The girl laughed, with an almighty grin
For she was a champion, not afraid to lead the world
Just an ordinary little girl
She ran it for charity, doing it for all sanity
Like any champion would do for all clarity.
I wrote this as I thought about a new marathon coming up called “Darkness into Light”. I thought of all the runners who run it every year and how the one leader must feel. I’m definitely going to run it this year. Win or lose, it’s all about taking part and that’s how a champion is made :). I hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you think in the comments. Bye for now!
