Me Vs. Hate

On I must run,

Faster I must fly;

From where I come,

To where I go;

Your guess is as good as mine.

I may sound rude,

My words may be crude,

I would stop to explain,

If only I could

As to my destination,

Hold no reservations;

There is a goal

Which I must achieve

With no hesitation.

I run with the wind-

I fall with the rain-

I set with the sun;

Hoping to rise again.

I follow the shooting star,

Not knowing how many paths there are.

I challenge Old Man Fate,

Who claims all roads end in


In my heart,

I look forward . . .

The beginning of love?

It surely can’t be hate;

I am sure I will be

Unavoidably late,

For I must stop

And take a mate.

Be assured,

I will re-enter the race

At the very next gate.

No longer must I tarry

No longer will I wait

For we have a race to run

Against Old Man Fate;

Me and my mate.
