Maybe I was Little Envious

He had shoulder length brown hair
flowing behind him in beautiful streams
as he ran with his yellow lab
down the same trail I run daily

He was six foot one
muscles from head to toe
shiny gold wedding band
on his left hand

His smile showed
the thousands of well-spent dollars
his parents paid a skilled orthodontist

I saw him coming
glared and
hoped he wouldn’t see the divot
I rolled my ankle on last Wednesday.

I definitely know how you feel. Sometimes I just want to be able to plod along without every would-be marathon runner breezing past me, making running look easy. Geez.
