The Race

I stand here looking out at my future

I am frozen

Unable to move from this spot

All of my friends are rushing by

I see their brilliant smiles

I hear their twinkling laughter

My heart skips a beat

"What if I fail?" I ask myself

My fear paralyzes me

I can't breathe

Tears start to run down my cheeks

Yet no one else sees this

They keep on running, smiling, laughing.

Why can't I be like them?

Why do I freeze?

I want to yell "Stop!"

"Help me! Wait for me!"

Now they are almost gone

I stand alone


Wishing I had found the courage to run

Wondering if I ever will
