The Race is not for the Swift
So now I am finally aware
Of a true end in sight
giving purpose to the journey
my excitement for this race takes flight
You said this to me so often
I can remember the weight of your tone
It might have been the deepest thought you ever had
And you made it your gift to me alone
The race is not for the swift
No life is a quick joke
Nothing is gained from glossing over,
with magic mirrors and smoke
You lose before you start
when you cheat, when you undermine others
when you trip them so they fall
it is you that lags behind the other runners
This is not a fight to the finish, is it?
Ah, that's what you meant for me
to absorb on the harder laps
as the crowd booed and cheered alternately
You wanted me to feel my victory
in making others winners
by losing pride and jealousy
like all the other sinners
You wanted me to love without expectation
Enjoy the ride and taste the freedom
Thinking up for myself - my path, my goals
be patient as life leads on to wisdom
Now the race has already started
and the pace has been set
I am winded by some of the obstacles
but I'm so glad, I can still run
It's not over yet
