Life is an obstacle race
Where nothing but competition rules
Constantly fear of losing
And anxiety of winning
Survival of the fittest
Elimination of the weakest
Yet everyone is constantly
Running a race…
Hurrying to unknown destination;
Meeting new targets
Toiling night and day
Comparing self with the other runners
Seeking encouragement along the way
Never taking your eyes off the goal
Or you risk losing your place.
Forever striving to cross the finish line
Not realising that some day
All we’ll be is faded photographs,
A wasted life, with no intimacy with self
Buried deep, deep within the soil
Wrapped in the shadows of time,
And it’s only a matter of time
It’s only a matter of time…
