Running the Gauntlet

from number b

Taking notes of possibilities 
Thinking big 
Thinking, but I feel so weak and small 
Sore head and knees I try 

Sleepy boy 
Sleeping through the day missing it all 
Anything at all 
Anything can happen in a dream 
Missing so much, missing so much 

Playing games 
Making choices to enhance my skills 
You know I'm drawing lines 
connecting dot to dot to dot to dot 
Things might turn out just fine 
Sore head and knees I try
