In a hurry
In a while
I’m out of time.

Demanding in all aspects
Race with a high toll

A horse with blinkers
To avoid the distractions
On the road to dreams.

He races on, unbroken

Focus

Your mind overwhelmed
The movie projector stops
Sounds melt into one
Focusing on what's ahead
In the zone is where you're at

Our morning prayer
Teaches us to choose our god
The Bible frees him
He loves my black nakedness
And not your mad crass racism

Long haul

You think I'm sprinting...
This is just the beginning,
Not even sweating
My heart is barely beating
Living for long-haul loving

The Caterpillar and Butterfly

The caterpillar and butterfly
differ in shape and color but 
in origin both life form began
in a cocoon and are one and 
the same inside.

Philippines Pride



                        three stars and a sun

                  heroes shed blood for freedom

                       waves proudly in sky.

At the Track

         At the Track
At the starting line
Engines revving vroom, vroom, vroom
Burning rubber - GO
Flags are waving zoom, zoom, zoom
Better stop now for new tires

Shadows

No matter how white you are or 
how light you become
When the sun hits, you're always gonna have
a dark person appear behind you
To remind you of where you came from

What goes up, Must come down

Beautiful Lake Erie bound by New York 
Romantic honeymoon, bottle and cork 
It went up with Viagra 
spilled unlike Niagara 
racing fast to arrive before the Stork!

Cheers!

Gold-Trochee

If my horse on the race course
a winner for me
then the course for my race horse
makes me debt free.

So the beat of the mare's feet
makes me debt free
gold such a treat for this feat
a winner for me.

Short Race poem by Wilfredo Derequito| Details | |

Humanity's Face

stand by your mirror,
see the human race
staring at your core,
reflected on your face.

a race that cannot forgive,
a race knowing no mercy,
a beast that does not give,
a beast that loves to slay.

ONE RACE ONE GOD ONE NAME

there's plenty race and faces

Short Race poem by Gerald Kithinji| Details | |

Uneven Race

…and those in the race
Continued running
And the gap widened
Between they and us
Who stayed behind
And invoked native ingenuity
To give value to our lives.

For us the race was run:
To beg their aid is taboo!

Short Race poem by bulinya martins| Details | |

secrets lost of the world long gone

secrets lost of the world long gone
arise from the belly of hereafter horizon
a deadly race to keep it hidden is on
the forces of light wrestle forces of darkness
and the poor human race is stirred
then left confused
