Love Is A Race - Poem by Njousi Abang

Love is a race
Once we are born
We begin the race
To look for and run
After the ideal love
That is always ahead
As we trail after in an Indian file
In quest of s/he that will bring
Joy and peace in our troubled hearts

Along the line those who get tired
And sit down to rest turn around
To meet others in similar circumstances
With whom they strike a compromise
To fall in love and marry certainly
Because they can't keep up with the race

However, when the new lovers sit down
For a while and rest for a time and discover
That there is still some energy to spend
The race begins all over again as both or one
Starts to run around in quest of true love
In order to compliment what s/he lacks
In a union that came out of fatigue
And not out of the results of the race
That was started from birth

No wonder then that when true lovers
Reach the finish line and meet each other,
Their love grows and blossoms
When they tie the golden knot
Till dead do them part.
