The race

Life is a journey of intense ups and downs

a turbulent ride thick with grins and with frowns

The lucky ones don’t have to endure it alone

navigating the route through a bustling home

The stress of the world has increased its fast pace

constantly urging us into the race

To achieve, to improve to always succeed

forcing a choice will you follow or lead?

What hat do you wear and who are you today?

When you’ve worked through your list is there

still room to play?

Remembering family comes first every time

maintains the focus to not cross the line

The rat race is worth it

as I step back to see

that there’s much more at stake now,

it’s no longer just me!
