Marathon of Mortality

miles and miles
never ceasing
there's no destination
no time limit
I am running and my lungs are screaming
my heart is beating and if I stop running now
I'll die
I keep passing the same people
I see all the same things
I'm starting to think I may be running in circles
My body is aching
my lungs are screaming for more air
but I just can't seem to fill them up
Fear overwhelms me as my muscles tense, stretch and burn
Where am I going?
How long do I have to run to get there?
It's then that I realize...

I'm running absolutely nowhere

I'm so tired
and I think I'm in last place
last place in the race to nowhere
