Nobodys Watching.

by Jessica   Oct 4, 2011


Forced smiles, deep long breathes-

the race is starting soon.

Is it normal, that I cant really move?

They think that im alright,

That I'll finish strong, like I usually do.

But the stress is eating me alive.

I dont Know if I will survive.

I hold In all those thoughts,

of being scared to run.

Im not a quitter, I'll never be.

I'll finish this race with dignity.

Hoping, Praying im the daughter they wish to have.

Why cant I be as athletic, Like my mom was in the past?

Im winning a losing battle,

cant you see, cant you see?!?

But I look over, and nobodys watching me..

(Inspired by cross country races..)

    The title was simple and intriguing and worked well.

    I was a little puzzled by the set-up, I'd suggest removing the gaps in the lines,
    and use stanza's to improve the flow.

    I liked the hope within this, amidst the feeling of failure.
    The ending was good too.

    A nice piece overall.

    I used to do crosscountry running. and i used to think the best thing about it is nobody was watching me. i think i perform best that way. when i know no one is watching me. it gives me room and space to do my best and be faithful to my god.. that helps me to perform well. i absolutely hate the feeling of being watched! nice write girl. but i think u want to be watched?
