The race

by swale

It was a race,
Both were running,
Time was ahead
And he was behind.

They ran in rain,
In the crowded street,
Through mountains,
But he did not see.

They loved him,
They cheered him,
They prayed for him,
But he did not realize.

Then he beat time,
And won the race.
He jumped in joy
Alone in a desert.
