Beautiful Disaster

The Masses at the Races

You are surrounded
By a cloud of witnesses
You are to be watched
As you run your race
Pressured to persevere
And even more pressure
To finish first
Ranked number one
Alone this race
Is impossible to complete
And if one looks to the crowds
For help
Or keeps looking behind him
He will surely stumble.
Therefore one must focus
On the finish line
And remember that
You are surrounded
And your words and actions
Are being watched.
You might be the inspiration
Or encouragement
For another runner
To continue running.
