The Runner

I race forward, 
Pushing the limits of my mortal body,
Passing the people who have quit,
But I will not quit,
I will not quit when my body tells me no, 
I will not quit when tempted by others,
I will not conform to worldly temptations, 
Because I maybe the only one running,
 But I am not alone,
And I will not run away from fate,
But towards it,
And when my heart can beat no more,
And my legs give 'way,
I will know that I have won,
For I have beaten all others who have quit,
I have raced with all I can give,
On this course of misfortune and pain we call society,
I raced forward,
And I fall knowing I have won this race known as life,
And I fall with a smile on my face,
The light slowly leaving my eyes,
When my worn heart stops.
