Tanka T154

Running through life with
Shoes heavier than most wear –
I’m faster than most –
Repeated triumphs over
Tragedies keep me happy

Notes to this poem…

If you wear heavier shoes, each step is more effort than for someone who wears lighter shoes. Translate that metaphor to life for this poem.

The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
