The Race of Life
Kristen, Age 12, Oskaloosa, IA

Life is a racetrack
There's no real end
trying to stay alive
get around the next bend.
We are like race cars
and what we believe
is in plain view
as we try to achieve
the ultimate prize
our lifelong goal,
to win the race,
and not pay the toll.
Our love for speed,
the thrill of it all
dulls our senses,
we can't hear the call
of our friends and family
telling us to slow down,
as we keep racing faster,
around and around.
