There is a certain frustration when running in sand
the progress when doing such is slow
each step you take is heavy
HEAVY with every little grain
each minisule bit
Yet the goal is to reach the top, isn't it?
So you try different things
taking large slow steps
picking up speed and trying to stay above the bits
the little bits, the grains of sand
Eventually you realize that going straight up the hill is futile.
What about approaching at an angle?
Surely going up the slope at an angle is better.
The summit is right there...
just out of grasp.
Then angrily you storm the hill, how dare it keep you there, you want to reach the top!
All of your energy! All of it!
Is spent fighting against those little bits
the little bits, the grains of sand.
