A Race Or Life?


Seeing the finish line, finally almost within grasp


With the intent to end what only was the beginning of the race


Sprinting to the finish line of my childhood


Only to find a marathon to follow


Looking back, wishing it was not a sprint race, but a scenic walk


Looking back, wishing it was filled with more preparation for the marathon ahead


With no time to waste I step up to the starting line, not knowing whats ahead


I will use what I have learned from the sprint to live the marathon


Slow down and enjoy the view


Finishing first is not the goal, it is to enjoy the ride up to the finish


Once this has been learned it is no longer a race

It’s life
