You run in the race without looking back
Sometimes missing the most significant things
Letting others trip over your obstacles
and jump over them to reach the finish line
You never showed arrogance
Always asked and accepted aid
And when the unimportant are done helping you
You have no problem throwing them away
Is your head so concerned with the ultimate goal,
that you forget the goodness of the present?
Is your mind so cluttered with green goods and possessions,
that you forget who placed them there?
I truly pity all your ways
And the irreverent style with which you live out your irrelevant days
I truly cannot blame you
For getting sucked into the black hole of life.
