Race of time

You win again.

Filled with resolution,

Fiery determination,

I sprinted and strutted.

Predicting your pace,

How was I to know-

The Spring in your step

The mottled colours of your Fall?

Numbed by your Winter’s breath,

Wilted in your Summer’s heat.

Turning now, there you go again-

Leaving me behind…

With remnants, the residue remains.

Soon, just a ghost of a year

That will haunt yellowed pages

Of history books, stacked high!

A flickering, fleeting wind-

You win again, the race of time,

Blasting the world record-

Filled with olympic breaking news!

Leaving surprised losers everywhere!

    1. Well, you’ve made my day/night coming over here. Still trying to get the balance right between being a dreamer and a commentator.
      Personally, I’ve got much to be grateful for but, this has also been an historical and turbulent year for many of us. Still I remain hopeful😀
