He runs across the parking lot,
His steps, firm and confident,
Not quite graceful, but pretty close.
This man, on two prosthetics-
I think he works at Duds-n-Suds,-
Sprints nonchalantly, his lean silhouette
Getting smaller and smaller,
As he moves further away from me.

I feel amazed, but also scared,
I donít quite know why.
I think of dashing after him;
Think of tapping him on the shoulder
And saying something like
I really admire your attitude.
But then it seems so stupid,
So fake, so corny in the worst way.

Instead, I stand there and watch him,
Now just a gray speck,
Floating through the sea of parked cars,
The Duds-n-Suds man,
running.

This really is a Very Nice poem of the Courage of those handicapped and just how far they can go and be normal as nothing is wrong. You really have a Very kind heart. and very well writen as I see him running away. You really are good at that imagery in all your poems Thank you This is really nice and encouraging. You otta send this one to places like veterans hospitals maybe ya know places to give people encouragement that hey you can do it!.Even places to encourage the children and shed light to all. The Duds n Suds man did!
