This is me Running up
through Henricksen,
One of the Old Vine
Cabernet vineyards.

i run up the mountain
trying to find my way

 

up passed nikkel and
hendricksen – the old

 

vine cabernet. It’s hard
but mom says I’m sure

 

to grow strong like the
vines that’ve always

 

surrounded me, defining
my spirit, giving me life.

 

so i’m truly relentless and
have no fear as i run up

 

the mountain each day
just so i can crumble

 

gasping in the heat and
dust and sweat, my lungs

 

screaming loud across
the quiet green valley:

 

who’s the idiot who said
that soccer was life?
