The Prize

Thump thump thump

my feet crunch against the ground

I need to

make it to the end

for the prize is incredible

I pass a beautiful garden

full of lovely flowers

that welcome me to come and smell their delicious scent

but I ignore them and

keep running

for the sooner I arrive the better the prize will be

I pass a hallway full of doors

that lend me their keys and invite me in

to explore

but I ignore them and

keep running

for the sooner I arrive the better the prize will be

I run on a beach where

the pearly sand blows

and the waves crash against the shore

and when

the tide retreats

it leaves thousands of seashells

that echo the sound of

their past

but I ignore them and

keep running

for the sooner I arrive the better the prize will be

and I finally arrive

and everybody claps

and I hold out my hands and ask

for my

prize

and they look at me surprised

and say

the prize was the journey
