Marathon Man

You ran and won
not the first
but the third…

Could be in front
the first absolute
the honor, grandiose

On the way, a stone
not still,
but a living one

The man came your way
tripped over you
you lost your balance

But you went on
continued to fight
run, you must
and run, you came
became a hero
got bronze

In your country
and for all the world,
you’re history
though forgotten,
a name, a face, a man
winning a race
in tears and pain.
