It is a race Poem by David Oladipupo Olorunshola


We all are on a race

A race for time

Racing against time

It is a race

We all must race

Some may derail

Derail temporarily

Even from the race

It is a race

A race with a final

Destination for all

Though you know

Not the time

But once you start

The race

You race your best

Though some may derail

In the race

You get back on track

And continue the race

It is long

Bumpy and tedious

And you know

You cannot afford

To stop

Once you stop

You can race no more

In this race

Every one is

A winner
