The Race

Todays poem is pretty much set on looking at life as if it were a race. There is not much to state on this but I hope it causes some to ponder as it were, where their race is run. Or how it is run, it differs for each person but the end result is the same. As always I welcome any and all coments. But I ask for forgiveness for any typos that may happen. I am prone to typos , which I update as I discover . Please enjoy.

The Race

Who can forget to run the race,
Gathered within and set the pace.
Live without regret it may not last,
The race of life may soon be past.

Freedom the inner most desire,
All who run will find their fire.
Living life the course that is set,
Your race is run without a bet.

Live your life as if a race is run,
You may stumble run like its fun.
Falls may happen but stay the course
Seek to run without remorse.

In Life you stumble, fall and fail,
Take it like you are set to sail.
Regret may hinder or cause to fall,
Live your life like it is your call.

  1. I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this site. I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own website now 😉


  2. Iím impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog thatís both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.


  3. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service? Cheers!
