The Race of Life
Maggie, Age 12, Peoria, IL
The race as we
all know it to be
Give us laughter, sadness, and glee.
I feel that in my heart
Each person will start.
Running and running we all do
To find a purpose, it is in you.
As we grow older we soon will learn
That every person deserves a turn.
The race of life will come to an end
As each person steps in Godís hand.
As I toss and turn around and around
I think that the race of life will not bring me down.
