Run – #Tanka

people doing marathon

I strive for greatness
To cross the finish in first
So when I must lose,
I question racing at all
Then gather my breath and run


This was written for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday #114, Try and Life!  The prompt reminded me of 1 Corinthians, 9:24: 

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

The point of the verse isn’t necessarily to literally win footraces, but to realize that your life will end, and to live the best life possible.  Never give up!
