My race

Standing tall
I see the horizon
There you wait for me
My destiny

I run
but the horizon never changes
Sure, the sun will set
and the moon will rise
but the horizon
never
ever
moves

I’m standing tall
I see you, horizon
I know you wait for me
My destiny

I will run
regardless.
I will run
fearless.
I will run
unbound.
I will run
free.

And,
if I never reach the horizon
I will leave earth
knowing I ran
and never stopped.
In that, I will take my peace,
I will take my rest,
I will take my satisfaction
and open my arms to the universe.

My destiny awaits
and perhaps, only in death
shall we
embrace.
When I have finished
my race.
