Life is a Race

Written by: Sherese Gooden

The tracks of life are set for replay
But we clear our path with might and goals
Sprinting onward come what may.

Looming clouds in our day   
Threaten our sunshine, black as coals-
The tracks of life are set for replay.

If golden sunlight’s our pay 
We grow for the race, just like foals-
Sprinting onward come what may.

Sometimes we glow from a beaming ray.
Who often foils our best laid goals?
The tracks of life are set for replay

We know the rules and follow them all the way 
And carefully run for our souls
Sprinting onward come what may. 

Great men and women all made from clay
Some are false starters some are moles;
The tracks of life are set for replay;
Sprinting onward come what may.
