Your beauty

Your beauty glows brighter
than the clearest night sky.
No star, no moon or sun can
match your elegance.
From the inner to the outer beauty,
not even a hummingbird can
contest your radiance.
As I look at the night sky,
I wish upon a shooting star
that one day, we can be together,
in love, in peace and with the knowledge
that we are soulmates.

A cheap hobby they said!

You need a hobby they said!
Running is cheap they said!
What is the mere cost of trainers,
shorts and a vest they said?
What is the cost? Ha!
£115 for the right pair of running shoes.
At least £40 for a good top and shorts,
not to mention winter wear.
The cost does not stop there with an
average entry fee of £20 per race,
All for a £1.50 medal and agonising legs.
Then you need a sports massage with £30-40 gone.
Of course, the cost does not stop there!
What about the other clothes you wear?
The weight loss, the toning, all bring the
requirement of a new wardrobe.
Lets not forget a club membership too!
But it is okay, it is cheap they said!
All in all, it is worth every penny, cent
and dime for running soon brings a thrill,
a non-runner will never know.
