#WarOfWords - The Race by Osowe Olugbenga




The world is a hard place
and many people are running a rat race.
Most of them leave the world with no trace
cos nothing stands to remind us of their place.

Before I start my own poem about the race,
sharply comot your face,
and run go read the poem below titled the race,

might be a guideline on how to enter the place.
When I say enter the place,
I no mean like TuFace!!!!!

#WarOfWords - The Race by Osowe Olugbenga

This life is a race like the Grand Prix
And I have got my winning Formula

1, I stand strong and keep my focus,
Ignoring all the hordes of distractions and their hocus-pocus
Keeping my concentration on the winner’s medal as my sole attraction
Even as I put on the garment of persistence
No matter the barriers and resistance
Enduring the pain,
Knowing that my efforts would not be in vain,
When the trophy becomes my gain,
Bringing me fame at the end of this game
And then the whole world would hear my name

2, I tackle this race like a battle, 
My resolve to win none can rattle,
God’s promise to me surer than the words any oracle’s
That’s why I step into the fray to face all obstacles,
Facing challenges, daring to do the impossible
Standing, I arm myself with the ultimate weapon- my words,
Speaking victory and mysteries,
Casting aside the elements of fear, doubts and miseries
I arm myself with the words that bring life,
So death cannot thrive,
My words bring me victory and light
So failure and darkness, take flight

3, I face this race of life like a football game,
Where I; am on God’s team, my victory – guaranteed,
Though challenges may come like an opponent with great skills and fancy dribbles,
I’ve only got eyes on the goal post, not on life’s foibles,
I set my targets, ready, aim and I shoot,
For the thrill of goals scored, the joy of success
Will kill all memories of the stress and distress
So now I apply my heart knowledge, just like a student of calculus
Differentiating my strengths from my weaknesses, but this is no talk about dy/dx
Rather I seek to know the why, the what, the who, the when and the how
To overcome my weaknesses, and then
I integrate my skills and opportunities
Making them of benefit to mankind and to God who
Daily loads me with benefits

So I stand and say this
That though the task before me be daunting,
And the crowd of doubters, increasing
I am in this battle of life to win it
Even when I take steps, that seem limiting,
And life’s troubles come at me in their legions
I will be the champion, for I am in it to win it
Come rain, come shine, come cold, come heat,
I’d never quit but stand strong, holding my head up
The victor at the end of it all!
