The Finish

I can see the finish line
the ribbon yet to cross
I enjoy the marathon
and the sleep that is to come
I am so humbled
to finish this test
And to do it
with you the very best
I’m not alone in this
trialed contest
I have the poets heart
all those writing next to me
Let us cross the finish
with our last of this tired poetry

  1. I enjoyed reading, “The Finish.”I admire you so much for doing the full marathon Tamara! This is such a great ode/ motivation to your completion! Congratulations! I loved your use of imagery with the “poet’s heart” and comparing the poetry marathon to a running race- beautiful comparisons.
