It’s a race for life, the breaths you take,
To stay alive; this you cannot fake . . .
From morning to night and till you wake.
It’s a race for thoughts inside your mind,
As they fly by, put you in a bind;
Sanity you can no longer find.
It’s a race for love in your spirit,
Though darkness will not let you near it;
Still, you cannot let yourself fear it.
