Race called life & living

Race called life & living

A Poem by Dawn

I'm no better than you
and you're no better than me
life is like a gamble
some are born to last
the course
and others
 not to get off
the starter blocks

or to fall
at a hurdle
and never
go on

and the odd few
that make it
till
the very end.
and
actually
win the race
called life and living
to an old age
are very lucky

Cynical or not but true.

Words of wisdom and truth. You have summed it up marvelously. Life has difficulties, hurdles but also stepping stones. Be your true self, live the moment to the fullest, help yourself and others and so forth. Life can present many oppurtunities.
