Burn – A Microstory

Run, run, run.

My feet – exhausted from life – are on fire.

They don’t stop moving. I don’t stop moving. Ambition and the need for perfection fuels the flames.

My feet are burning.

Pressure, pain, purpose.

I burn for me, for you. Us.

    Life is hard and hope the feet do not suffer from blisters. A big price to pay for perfection and ambition.

      Absolutely. I think far too many people are putting way too much pressure on themselves these days. And it’s scary how fast life has to move now. Thanks for reading and commenting.
