There’s more to a marathon than meets the eye
It’s a metaphor for living.
Like “The Boston,” life’s a race.
There are hills, downpours and shin splints.
There’s a stiff wind in your face.
While you run it flanked by others,
often times you feel alone.
You get winded and discouraged.
You’re exhausted to the bone.
Life is never like a cake walk.
It’s a marathon at best.
It’s a measure of endurance.
It’s a complicated test.
But a second wind awaits you
if you pace yourself each day.
Dropping out is not an option.
Finish strong! Go all the way!
