Life’s Race

My legs feel as strong as I am myself,
which is not very much. But still I keep running fast,
for you cannot stop life, and so you cannot stop life’s race.
Life is a race in which you cannot walk.
Although you cannot stop life,you can slow your’s down just a little.
For since you cannot run through the
forest without seeing the leaves,
you should not run through life without tasting the fruit.
As long as you stay focused on that light,you will accomplish anything your heart is desiring.
Even if you stop to taste the berries in the forest,
you can still win your own race.
All you need to do is know what you want and
want what is real and your’s.
