Am I There Yet?

Am I There Yet? 

One thing to know there 

actually, is no race 

and not a there to get to. 

Yet here I am day after 

day, attempting to run on 

feet that feel worn out, 

and unable to run faster 

or harder. Where is this 

there I seek? 

I deepen my gaze, 

still nothing ahead 

of me that confirms 

a there ahead.  I wonder

if I avert my eyes, even 

for a moment, will I 

finally lose sight 

of it long enough 

to be here, now?
