Heard them say 
their words with feeling 
Heard the tone
and
plaintive call. 

Knew my words
compared to theirs
were small  
overall. 

Understand
they have the stature 
believe
their words say
it all 

But
I look within myself 
and know
I still have to write
those words given me 
I have to answer
that 
inner call.

Heard Them Speaking

December 20, 2018

Ganaraska Ultra Run

Heard them speaking
I heard them say
All the words I needed
To get thru
This long, long day.

No words of encouragement
None that I heard today
Only words of excellence
That’ll last me
Throughout the journey
I’ll be on today.
~ Patrice
