Beyond Myself

I started to move

The motive was clearer

Sped up

tried to catch up

The thrill was fun

I stepped on the pedal

Crushed it to the floor

like a ravenous hungry beast

The nozzle sucked the gas

I accelerated

Faster and faster

Wind gushing through the hair

Flapping the shirt

In a mad frenzy

Shrieking wind cried

In a weird urgent way

Faster and faster

Wild and driven

Till it was all behind

Till it was all quiet

Till it was all still

Sublime

Blissfully

I had gone

Beyond me

Right now I have this day to finish

Each box ticked
Whew!! the work is done.
the day draws to an end
and we count it as one.

Rising again with the sun
Unwilling to start the next count
Yet eager to finishing this one
boxes to be ticked, once again mount

Each count ends in a week,
quitely into a month, the week crept
I celeberate the birth one more time
Counting the many nights I have slept

Counting the nights was easy,
For the sleeping part I was sure.
Did I wake up or just sleep walked?
Of the day I was not sure.

On the moving tread I walked
counting the steps and time,
Achievements recorded on the counter
Celeberations for with every chime

I ran and walked
moving constantly on the set pace
Tired and exhausted,
yet competing the static race

In this race, I am running.
finish line is everyone’s dread
Yet in the race
I run faster instead.

I know I have another half to live
For doing all the things I wish
there will be time to live my life
But now, I have this day to finish
