I decided one night that I would run on until I finish and see what the end will be.

The race is not over until you cross the finish line.

You have time so you stop to window shop, greet people and dine.

You have to finish this race no matter the cost.

As you run on you think of what you've gained and what you lost.

Ready to get it back ten times fold.

This is what you know, what you were told.

Lessons learned taught and found.

You move through your triles without a sound.

You go through your life and sometimes simly ignore.

That sometimes the decisioin is which way and which door.

But if you run on and fix your eyes to see.

What God has before you and what the end will be.

Sometimes we stumble and fall, but drop out of the race.

Just take deep breaths, jog, just pace.

Soon you'll see your fear will deminish.

So run on, run this race until you finish.
