Race against time

Race against time


She wakes up to the alarm buzz

Sleep still lingering over her eyes

A strong desire to rest some more

Oh no, children have to go to school

Breakfast, lunch boxes

I will be late again at the office

It is her race against time.

He reminisced his childhood

A fun filled life

Bicycle rides

Summer holidays at grandpa’s home

Now the laptop is his companion

Family visits on video calls

His race against time ongoing

As a grey haired figure

Stares back in the mirror.

Life is like a race

Competing with time

Stand in way of time

Add value to your life

Live each moment

Great men die

In the race of life

They continue to live

For the legacy left behind.


What do you think?
