Poem: Finish Line

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Finish Line" is a short poem. It is about pondering over our life choices.

Have we made the right ones or do we need to wipe the slate clean and start over before it's too late.

"Skillet ~ Finish Line (lyrics)


Finish Line

As the finish line draws near

we ponder those little moments,

wondering if we fell short

along the edges of life’s journey.

Not wanting our mistakes

to follow us into the next realm,

hoping to wipe the slate clean,

with a chance to open life’s doors

from a different angle.


The finish line is just the beginning of a whole new race.
