Day Ninety-Nine

The start of the journey is new and exciting
Illusions are there to be shattered and torn
With unbridled hope he embarks on a journey
Spurred on by the break of immaculate dawn.

He shortly encounters the honeymoon moments
When everything clicks and it all goes to plan
With no entertainment of rash complication
He soaks up these days for as long as he can.

Time seems succumbant to deceleration
The incline increases and weariness clutches
The ground underneath either stops or goes backwards
He seems to be cursed by whatever he touches.

All through the night he ploughs on through the darkness
With no real direction or sense of the time
But when daybreak peers on the distant horizon
He shrugs off exhaustion and sprints for the line.
