Deep from within the culture of Greece Thousands of souls have run into my heart Each carrying a single candle Whose lights have illuminated The heavens in our universe -- Alive and throbbing, even though Four more un-destructible souls Have been made To populate my sad heart. On perusing the artifacts at Copley Square And read the words of those surviving, Either in phrases or graffiti, I do not read about those Who thought-up, helped, planned And executed another criminal disaster Against an innocence Inherent In the human heart. Memories stand out on the meaning ...................................................................................................... Of the Boston Marathon ~coluran~ ~not Shown through The sandals left behind by those who ~ ~ ~ ~ h~for~~ walked it, The sneakers left behind by those who ran it, and, by Adolph Adolfo Caso The wheel chairs left behind by those who drove it To show that life is precious -- To be cherished rather than to be destroyed. The Marathon is a representation Of days coming together With people from all over the world Of every race, culture and creed Competing with the sole object O f finishing, Together as one, As if the human race were one Great Spirit Growing without dimensions or time -- Like water That runs Into the oceans of our hearts. Come, pick up a cap, And watch the runners compete against themselves; Or, Choose a pair of sneakers and run with me, However short the distance may be; Better still, Take over any wheel chair And give the people of your world A heritage of triumphant life Instead of pre-determined death!
