Feel The Burn

Watch the trainers
train the clients
hear the chant
feel the burn

see the athletes
sweat through reps
go for the gold
feel the burn

Push the edges
doing the needful
getting it done
feel the burn

see the knuckles
puffy and warm
chill of morning
feel the burn

like a thief
in the night
came in silence
feel the burn

feel every keystroke
grimace shaking hands
wonder if they see
feel the burn

watch the clock
smooth on balm
time crawls by
feel the burn

end of day
come what may
make my way
feel the burn

wish in one hand
shit in the other
remember when I didn’t
feel the burn
