Life Is A Marathon - Poem by Dimitri Jagodinski

Mile after mile
Pushing it to the limit
Passing and being passed
Always looking forward
Glancing cautiously behind
Pushing it to the limit
Running out of time
Trying to beat the clock
Improving each mile
Learning from past mistakes
Pain burning every inch of the body mind spirit and soul
Pushing it to the limit
Victory is the personal goal
Mile after mile
The devil mischeiviouly places obstacles in our path
Just give up and its over no more pain to indure
Yet we run faster and harder
Desiring to prove him wrong
Our spirit remains strong
Pushing it to the limit
Must go on
Almost finished with this
Heart beating so fast chest begins to cave in
Sweat burning our eyes blurring our vision
Legs become heavy like someone is grabbing on to slow us down
Inflicting unbearable pain as our graceful stride becomes a clumsy clog
Each breath we takes burns our
arid throat
Pushing it to the limit
Because we know we must go on
And finish this marathon
