Pace yourself
these last few furlongs,
let time unravel before you,
it would be a shame to
rush the last few steps,
they are the best part of the
whole journey.

When the finish is in sight
and anticipation at its height
measure your steps, walk slowly
and let yourself be seen.

Let them see
how you got here,
the scars on your body,
the marks on your soul,
let them see your lovely heart,
don’t look back, just let them see
how many failures it has taken
for you to succeed.
