The race for life,
The race against death,
The race with time to dodge the quirks of fate.
The race whose finish line neither the creator nor the spectators
but I am the only person who has the freedom to determine.
With my tenacity and endeavors I keep fueling my valor,
Bathed in tears and sweat I stupefy the audience with the intensity with which I shine.
I neither look back nor tremble at the remaining length of the track
for the qualm may destroy my ardor and craving to reach the mark.
In the heat of the moment I run as fast as I can
for what fogs my mind is the rewarding feeling of accomplishment that would never wan.
