I know I’ve passed the half way mark

and I’m on the homeward stretch.

It’s not a race that I’m running here,

but I guess you could call it a test.

It’s certainly called on resilience,

I’ve often veered from the track.

It’s a long and arduous race I’m on,

but there’s no use in turning back.

I’ll admit I’ve found it quite difficult ,

to keep on pounding on and on.

You see, it’s my life I’m running here,

and it can feel like a marathon.
