Running

by Heather  Fettig

 

I never knew I loved the hurt.

The pain of pushing farther and pushing harder,

The soreness and the sweat.

 

I never knew I loved the satisfaction.

The feeling of accomplishment,

The joys of winning.

 

I never knew I loved the rain, beating against my face.

The wind fighting, going the other way.

The sound of feet hitting the pavement,

Splashing of puddles and coldness of snow.

 

I never knew I loved the smells.

The fresh cut grass on the way by a house.

The fresh air going through an open field.

I never knew I loved to run.
