you are so persistent.

your loud voices chanting,

"who do you think you are?"

you had me all wound up,

and ready to quit.

how could you?

but I carried on.

one step, two steps, three steps,

and away I ran,

and left you in the dust.

my feet pounding the pavement,

silencing your screams.

you will not break me!

the wind blowing my hair,

and the sweat falling off my face.

and all I could hear was the sound of my breath,

and the rhythm of my steps.

one, two, three...
