Taking Souls

Putting in them early morning miles,

All smiles, all day, even with all the trials

They’re testing, no resting

I’ll be gone for awhile.

They sleep so I run

No fun, but I’m winning

Beginning to think

About life that I’m living.

About life that’s been given

These options are mine

Intertwine, post-Thanksgiving

I’m back on the grind.

Got twenty eighteen

At the front of my mind

Taking souls, staying lean

I’m the last of my kind.
