Moment’s dream

Filed under: Doodles, Blabs and Rants — didee @ 7:57 pm

Picture this.

An athlete running on her last lap. Her heart pounding. Her mind running way ahead of her. Her eyes grasping for the finish line, towards the goal that’s waiting for her. She tried not to mind the tiring wait while she run for the prize.

Then as she was a few steps away from the finish line, the thin strip of ribbon floated away and the trophy blurred. She reach her arms out hoping that perhaps her tears and sweat blurred her vision and that her prize is just within her grasp. But it was real. They were gone.

She was then told that she still has to keep on running. To keep on waiting.

They change the game.

Another 10 laps more to go. Ten laps were added because… just because. She has no control over it, nor was she aware of it. First there were hurdles placed between her and her target. And now more laps were added.

Everything she had in mind the moment she started running was to reach the finish line.

She is well aware that this is not her life’s race. But this run is her moment’s dream. And it means as much to her as any award-winning moments there is.

She prepared herself for this run, she trained, setting her heart on crossing that line which would tell her this race is finish and that she qualifies for the next game.

Her knees started to quiver and her heart stood muted. Why does her prize keeps on going a bit farther from her, just when she can almost touch it with her hand. Just when she can almost taste it.

She was alone in this race.

So she stopped running.

She stopped running and walk instead. Head bent a little low. Bend don’t break, she keeps mumming. Heart still hoping. Hoping that perhaps her prize would meet her halfway. Because she knows she is worth it.

  3. Though the prize may be elusive, have the patience and strength to hope and will for it, for what kind of race would it be if there won’t be any prize, if the runner gave up and the heart falters?

    Every vision is worth dreaming and every dream is worth envisioning.
