We've got to admit that life is a race isn't it. Here is a poem describing just that!
Life is a Race
There’s no denying it
something we must all face
by trying to rush through it
The race begins
on the days of schooling
trying to oust their peers
in all of their doing.
In a world where literacy is precious
There is no time for one to be pious
God can but only aid us in our doing
But not grant us everything on our asking.
We must crush others on our way to the end
Without doing so, out goal will be out of reach
By going through the obstacles in our path
Is the only way we have a chance to fulfill our goals without breach
The race continues when one turns adolescent With such immense pressure that the mind pleads for a vent With exams and tests, the mind is kept busy
This only forces us to theorize that life is all out crazy.
When one acquires a job and receives money
it only but helps to increase the burning desire to overtake his company for when one learns to earn
He also learns to yearn
When one treads the chaotic path of life
He sometimes pauses to think
what is the purpose of this meaningless journey? But before he finds a solution
He is forced to move on by someone else’s decision
When the skin starts to shrivel and the hair turns grey
One presumes that the race has stopped
but realize in dismay that there is some more distance to run and crush others along the way
Life is but a race
from beginning to end
where we have no other way
but to run alongside others, my friend.
