A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

~Salman Rushdie


Give up? No, never
Run, run til the finish line
Is in a hand’s reach.


The author's comments:
I often have to remind myself, "dont give up..try your best..race til the race is run". My hope is that this small haiku will be a BIG help for others.
