Are you a man or a mouse ?



That moment.
When you are huffing and puffing.
Chugging to the hilltop.
The salty sweat on your brow
creeping into your eyes.
It burns and scathes
but you scarcely notice.
 
That moment.
When your vision narrows.
Fixing its gaze to the top.
When breathing seems like
a delightful luxury.
When all you want is
STOP! STOP! MERCY!

That moment.
..................
You are reminded.
Of great men and their
4 minute miles.
Revealing the greatness within you.
to be a man, not a mouse.
