The Alarm Clock Has An Attitude

January 2nd, 2012


That is the start to my morning

You see my alarm clock has an attitude, and he brings it without warning

He has no regard for the comfortable consideration the bed has made

And it’s incredible hold it has on me, especially the days it’s storming.

So feet hit the floor, mind still on the pillow

The Green shoes beckon for company with the Garmin waiting as well

I hardly think they even worry about the oncoming hills though.

Those two are ready if I am at the beach or running in the snow

Shirt, shorts, socks and the shoes on the tired body that just wants back in bed

I know I should put bread in the toaster; carbs for fuel is what the experts say

But the thought of all that work of making toast

Well frankly it’s just too much for me to handle today

Make the way to the door, “it’s not too late, I am still warm” my bed calls

One last look at the bedroom door

Why is the door so heavy, why are my feet dragging, trying to stall?

Through the garage, now I feel the chill of the morning

It’s dark as the door raises but is that a glimpse of the sun rising?

The cold hits my face, and makes the alarm clock seem juvenile

Long walk to the end of the driveway; yep that’s the dawn on the horizon

I can’t hear my bed calling anymore, the alarm clock has been put in the forgotten file

One last look at the house and now make sure the Green shoes are tied right

Headphones in, I think it will be Bob Marley running with me today

Hit the button on the Garmin, first steps toward the morning light

Run Hard – Always Finish
