The Poet: Lucille Clifton, "We Are Running"

"We Are Running"

"We are running,
running and
time is clocking us
from the edge like an only
daughter.
Our mothers stream before us,
cradling their breasts in their
hands.
Oh pray that what we want
is worth this running,
pray that what we’re running
toward
is what we want."

~ Lucille Clifton
