day 101

Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, so that you may live and occupy the land that they LORD your God is giving you.  Deuteronomy 16:20

i can spend months
   training, increasing
      my miles, focusing
      on the upcoming marathon;
i go twice a week
   to the boot camp
   to get back to
         my college weight
         and energy for
      the reunion;
i continue to play
   sports my doctor
   reminds me only
      damage my body
              more . . .

but chasing
      justice?

i barely break
a
sweat.
