Life is a race.



The Run
            To Run, and to Live Life, Is to do the
the same, but in separate dimensions.
            You will be asked in life to do the
 unreasonable for Love.
            In those times remember the Pain of
searing lungs and leaden legs, and your yearning
to quit your straining to the finish line.
            And when love begs to be excused from
doing that which seems unfair.
            Remember how you chose to feel the pain
that seemed to suck out life, pushing forward to the
line, which marked your victory.
            Then give your love, despite the pain of
seeming weak.
            And like the flood of joy you feel, as you
walk beyond the finish line,
            Feel joy that says, "I ran the race of life for
others, and gave myself away, that they might

yearn to run the race that I have chosen."
